about M:C:D

The Music, Computing, and Design (MCD) research group at Stanford University's CCRMA, led by faculty member Ge Wang, aims to conduct research in computer music and design, including:

  • artful design of software systems for computer music (book: Artful Design)
  • programming languages and interactive environments (ChucK, Chunity, WebChucK)
  • virtual reality design for music (Stanford VR Design Lab @ CCRMA)
  • computer-mediated performance ensembles + paradigms (e.g., laptop orchestras: SLOrk, course)
  • audio-visual interaction design (MIDI.CITI, sndpeek, Music 256a/CS 476a)
  • humans-in-the-loop: artful design of interactive AI systems (ISSE, essay, Music 356a/CS 470)
  • social and cognitive aspects of music and computing (Jieun's thesis work | lolol, pdf)
  • mobile music / social music (e.g., Ocarina, MoPhO, MoMu; also see Smule)
  • HCI-mediated interactive machine learning for audio (ISSE)
  • philosophy of design; aesthetics & ethics of shaping technology (Artful Design)
  • education at the intersection of computer science, music, and the humanities
  • We warmly invite students, faculty, researchers, composers, and collaborators to join! Please contact Ge for more information. Thanks!
