This book provides unique insights and perspectives for artists, students, teachers, mediators and anyone interested in how consciousness may be effected by profound attention to the sonic environment. Deep Listening® is a practice created by composer Pauline Oliveros in order to enhance her own as well as other's listening skills. She teaches this practice worldwide in workshops, retreats and in her ground breaking Deep Listening classes at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Mills College.
Deep Listening practice is accessible to anyone with an interest in listening. Undergraduates with no musical training benefit from the practices and successfully engage in creative sound projects. Generative deep learning. Teaching machines to paint, write, compose and play. Generative modeling is one of the hottest topics in AI.
It’s now possible to teach a machine to excel at human endeavors such as painting, writing, and composing music. With this practical book, machine-learning engineers and data scientists will discover how to re-create some of the most impressive examples of generative deep learning models, such as variational autoencoders,generative adversarial networks (GANs), encoder-decoder models, and world models. Author David Foster demonstrates the inner workings of each technique, starting with the basics of deep learning before advancing to some of the most cutting-edge algorithms in the field.
Through tips and tricks, you’ll understand how to make your models learn more efficiently and become more creative. Handmade electronic music. The art of hardware hacking. Description Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking provides a long-needed, practical, and engaging introduction to the craft of making - as well as creatively cannibalizing - electronic circuits for artistic purposes.
With a sense of adventure and no prior knowledge, the reader can subvert the intentions designed into devices such as radios and toys to discover a new sonic world. At a time when computers dominate music production, this book offers a rare glimpse into the core technology of early live electronic music, as well as more recent developments at the hands of emerging artists.
In addition to advice on hacking found electronics, the reader learns how to make contact microphones, pickups for electromagnetic fields, oscillators, distortion boxes, and unusual signal processors cheaply and quickly.

Nooit eerder werden in ons taalgebied zoveel nuttige ervaring en knowhow samengebracht. Musicophilia. Tales of music and the brain. A Bolt from the Blue: Sudden Musicophilia Tony Cicoria was forty-two, very fit and robust, a former college football player who had become a well-regarded orthopedic surgeon in a small city in upstate New York.
He was at a lakeside pavilion for a family gathering one fall afternoon. It was pleasant and breezy, but he noticed a few storm clouds in the distance; it looked like rain. He went to a pay phone outside the pavilion to make a quick call to his mother (this was in 1994, before the age of cell phones). He still remembers every single second of what happened next: “I was talking to my mother on the phone.
Then—he seemed to hesitate before telling me this—“I was flying forwards. Sonic agency. Sound and emergent forms of resistance. In a world dominated by the visual, could contemporary resistance be auditory?
Sonic Agency highlights sound’s invisible, disruptive, and affective qualities, and asks whether the unseen nature of sound can support a political transformation. In this timely and important book, author Brandon LaBelle sets out to engage contemporary social and political crises by way of sonic thought and imagination. He divides sound’s functions into four figures of resistance – the invisible, the overheard, the itinerant and the weak – and argues for their role in creating alternative “unlikely publics” in which to foster mutuality and dissent. This is your brain on music. The science of a human obsession. “Endlessly stimulating, a marvelous overview, and one which only a deeply musical neuroscientist could give….An important book.”
—Oliver Sacks, M.D. “I loved reading that listening to music coordinates more disparate parts of the brain than almost anything else – and playing music uses even more! Despite illuminating a lot of what goes on, this book doesn’t ‘spoil’ enjoyment—it only deepens the beautiful mystery that is music.” —David Byrne, founder of Talking Heads and author of How Music Works “Levitin is a deft and patient explainer of the basics for the non-scientist as well as the non-musician….By tracing music’s deep ties to memory, Levitin helps quantify some of music’s magic without breaking its spell.” Wild soundscapes. Discovering the voice of natural world.
