Six summer workshops (held July and August 2004) by Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) will be hosted by The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada, while CCRMA’s Stanford facilities undergo renovations.

“The renovation of our facilities coincides with an opportunity to experience an expanded set of course offerings in a fantastic setting,” said CCRMA director Chris Chafe. “The Banff Centre’s music research and production team of experts and its tradition of training the next generation matches what CCRMA is all about.”

The CCRMA@Banff workshops are designed for musicians and composers interested in exploring widely used digital audio technology and for engineers, computer scientists and product designers. Programs include Physical Interaction Design for Music (July 5 to July 16), Haptic Musical Devices (July 19 to 23), Digital Signal Processing (DSP) I: Spectral and Physical Models (July 26 to August 6), Perceptual Audio Coding (August 9 to 13), Digital Signal Processing (DSP) II: Digital Audio Effects (August 16 to 27) and ANET: High-Quality Audio Over Networks Summit (August 20 to 22).

Program faculty for CCRMA@Banff include Chris Chafe, Theresa Leonard, Scott Wilson, Michael Gurevich, Bill Verplank, Charles Nichols, Perry Cook, Xavier Serra, Marina Bosi, Richard Goldberg, Jonathan Abel, Dave Berners and Julius O. Smith.

Music and Sound (pictured, Rolston Hall) at The Banff Centre offers professional development programs for musicians and audio engineers. Audio facilities include a state-of-the-art multitrack recording studio, an audio film post-production suite, digital editing and mastering suites featuring Sonic Studio HDSP and Pyramix workstations, an electro-acoustic studio for music composition and numerous performance venues.

“The Centre marries state-of-the-art equipment, faculty who are leaders in the audio and music technology industries, and a retreat-like setting that is ideal for focused work,” commented Theresa Leonard, director of audio programs at The Banff Centre.

Registration is now open for the six CCRMA@Banff workshops, and is limited to 15 to 20 participants. Complete program information, including online registration, is available at
