John Chowning

Keynote speaker


John Chowning was born in Salem, New Jersey, in 1934. Following military service he studied music at Wittenberg University where he concentrated on composition and received a BMus degree in 1959. He then studied composition in Paris for three years with Nadia Boulanger. In 1966 he received the doctorate in composition from Stanford University, where he studied with Leland Smith. With the help of Max Mathews of Bell Telephone Laboratories and David Poole of Stanford, in 1964 he set up a computer music program using the computer system of Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. This was the first implementation of an on-line computer music system ever. Beginning in 1964, he built a program that allowed the simulation of moving sources in a quadraphonic projection. In 1967, Chowning discovered the frequency modulation (FM) algorithm in which both the carrier frequency and the modulating frequency are within the audio band. This breakthrough in the synthesis of timbres allowed a very simple yet elegant way of creating and controlling time-varying spectra. Over the next six years he worked toward turning this discovery into a system of musical importance. In 1971 he made a significant advancement based upon analytical research of Jean-Claude Risset and Max Mathews at Bell Telephone Laboratories. Stanford University began a relationship with Yamaha in Japan in 1973, which led to the most successful synthesizer series in the history of electronic musical instruments.

Chowning has received fellowship grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and was artist-in-residence with the Kunstlerprogramm des Deutschen Akademischen Austauschdiensts for the City of Berlin in 1974, and guest artist in IRCAM, Paris in 1978-79, in 1981, and in 1985. His compositions have been widely performed around the world and have been recorded on compact disc. In 1983 he was honored for his contributions to the field of computer music at the International Computer Music Conference in Rochester, New York. In 1988 he was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was awarded the Honorary Doctor of Music by Wittenberg University in 1990. The French Ministre de la Culture awarded him the Diplôme d’Officier dans l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres in 1995. He was awarded the Doctorat Honoris Causa in 2002 by the Université de la Méditerranée and in 2010 by the Queen’s University, Belfast.

Beginning in 1966 Chowning taught computer-sound synthesis and composition at Stanford University's Department of Music and was the founding director in 1975 of the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), one of the leading centers for computer music and related research.


Simon Emmerson

Keynote speaker


Since November 2004 Simon Emmerson has been Professor of Music, Technology and Innovation at De Montfort University, Leicester. As a composer he works mostly with live electronics; recent commissions include works for the Smith Quartet, Philip Sheppard (electric cello), Philip Mead (piano) with the Royal Northern College of Music Brass Quintet, Keynote+ (Jane Chapman and Kate Ryder - harpsichord and piano). He has also completed purely electroacoustic commissions from the IMEB (Bourges), the GRM (Paris) and the Inventionen Festival (Berlin). He is currently at work on commissions for Katrin Zenz (flute) and Sond’Arte (Lisbon). CDs of his works have been issued by Continuum (1993) and Sargasso (2007 and 2008). He contributed to and edited The Language of Electroacoustic Music in 1986 (Macmillan, still in print) and Music, Electronic Media and Culture (Ashgate, 2000). His book Living Electronic Music was published by Ashgate in 2007. He has contributed to such as Computer Music Journal, Contemporary Music Review and Journal of New Music Research. He was founder Secretary of EMAS (The Electroacoustic Music Association of Great Britain) in 1979, and served on the Board of Sonic Arts Network from its inception until 2004. He is a Trustee of its successor organisation ‘Sound and Music’. In 2009-2010 he was DAAD Edgar Varese Visiting Professor at the TU, Berlin. In the summer of 2011 he gave the keynote addresses at the Australasian Computer Music Conference (Auckland) and the International Computer Music Conference (Huddersfield).

In 1999, he produced his full-length opera Der Sprung - Beschreibung einer Oper for which author and film director Thomas Brasch wrote the libretto. In May 2002, his interactive networked performance environment Quintet.net was employed in a Munich Biennale opera performance. In 2004, he instigated the development of the Bohlen - Pierce clarinet and in 2005 he co-founded the European Bridges Ensemble for networked music performance.

In addition to his compositions, which are characterized by a pluralistic attitude and have earned him several international prizes, the IBM-prize of the Ensemble Modern (1990) among them,Hajdu published articles on several topics on the borderline of music and science. His areas of interest include multimedia, microtonality, algorithmic, interactive and networked music performance. He has been directing a number of international projects with media centers and universities in Europe and the USA. Currently, Georg Hajdu is professor of multimedia composition and music theory at the Hamburg Hochschule of Music and Theater.
