CENTER FOR RESEARCH IN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC MUSIC [C.R.E.A.M.] Current Projects

CREAM Director Allen Strange is enjoying a well-deserved sabbatical during the Fall 1995 semester. Rumor has it that he is composing at a wild pace.

Brian Belet is continuing his research in the area of real-time software synthesis using the Center's new Kyma system, which was installed during this past summer. He is teaching a course in Digital Synthesis introducing upper-division students to this system, its capabilities, and the Smalltalk programming environment.

He is continuing his work with Dr. William Walker (Apple Computer, Inc.) in the area of real-time performance computer improvisation using Walker's ImprovisationBuilder. They are collaborating on a new composition for two Disklaviers and two computers, each running ImprovisationBuilder, which will be premiered on the SJSU American Music Week"Electro-Acoustic Concert", November 9, in the SJSU Concert Hall.

Pablo Furman is producing the SJSU American Music Week "Electro-Acoustic Concert", and continuing his work in electro-acoustic composition. He is teaching the Electro-Acoustics course this semester.
