LECTURER – Music Technology and Music Perception – Department of Music

The Department of Music at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a
pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach any of the following areas:
Music and technology involving CNMAT technologies and Max/MSP programming.
Special topic courses involving software programming for musical applications of computers.
Music courses focusing on music perception and cognition. Music appreciation courses with
an emphasis on music software and lab-based learning.

Project

Tone

Tone is an analog audio feedback circuit with a tree-like array of three electret condenser microphones, a resonant loudspeaker, 9V amplifier, and a waveguide. This circuit is configured with the loudspeaker pointed upward at the mic array which produces audio feedback. The pipe configuration is situated above the loudspeaker/resonant chamber. The loudspeaker consists of a single 4Ω coil and raised glass sphere. When a participant walks around the device a Helmholtz-like standing wave is disrupted and produces different frequencies as a result.

Project

Bloom

Bloom is a flower-like analog oscillator on a transparent substrate comprised of three piezoelectric transducers, one transistor, one 3V battery, three LEDs, three photoresistors, and three resistors. This circuit is configured in a feedback loop which allows it to self-oscillate and produce variable light/sound sequences. The transparent substrate and stem-like conductive trace design gives each component an aesthetic quality. Photoresistors on the piezo elements provide subtle interaction by changing the electrical resistance when light is more or less present.
