YalMusT New Resources & Workshops

YalMusT are greatly expanding our yearly workshop offerings this year.  In addition to notation workshops (Sibelius and Finale) we are offering a series of workshops in conjunction with the new Open Music Initiative that are designed to introduce you to open source hardware and software for musical notation, editing, production, etc.  This is software you can download and use for free that can replace many for-cost programs.  Additionally, we are teaching a number of DIY hardware workshops where participants can learn about analog sound synthesis while actually making simple synthesizers.  To keep up-to-date on what is happening you have a plethora of choices.

The official YalMusT pages below contain lots of useful information about our labs, offerings, classes, and more.

ICMPC-APSCOM 2014 Conference Proceedings

It is always a good idea to look through conference proceedings when starting to work on a new project. This is where you will find the latest work, which might not make it in print until it will be too late for your project!

The International Music Perception Conference is the largest international event on music perception and cognition. You can browse through the conference proceedings here:

I will bring a printout of the table of contents tomorrow, but it will be too late for your preliminary bibliography! You will find that there were several sessions on topics relevant to your research questions…
