“SoundBlade Power User and associate professor of music at New York University, Allan Tucker has been mastering with soundBlade and NoNOISE since the late ’80s at his renowned studio, Foothill Digital (www.foothilldigital.com) and TuckerSound in NYC. Some may remember that Allan was the infamous “Where’s Drago” on the band’s self-titled album “KISS” in 1974…” -Sonic Studio

Sensory Optimization: Technology for Augmenting Our Personal Environments
by Dr. Poppy Crum, Senior Scientist at Dolby Labs
Date: Friday April 25, 2014
Location: 35 W. 4th St. 6th Floor Conference Room
Our experience of the sensory world does not need to be constrained by our physical limitations. When navigating the environment our senses interact to perceive a robust non-veridical experience. Understanding these interactions and being able to define them perceptually and algorithmically allows technological developments that can facilitate sensory enhancement and optimization. Examples include use of targeted neuroplasticity to modify our internal experiences, wearable personalized technologies for sensory augmentation, and heightened virtual sensory experiences that elicit natural cross-modal percepts.
The song “Amazing”, written and produced by our very own NYU graduate David “Swagg R’celious” Harris (MM ’10) for Gospel artist Livre, recently reached #17 on the Mediabase Gospel Charts. It has now been on the Top Charts for 2 weeks according to the Mediabase Charts, and seems to be continuing to climb.
“When Brooklyn band Big Ups hitch up to London for the first time, there’s an intense sense of occasion surrounding their live debut. It’s strange, given that ‘Eighteen Hours of Static’ is a couple of months post-release. Songs on their first record are some two, three years old too. But that’s how these things work. Even when releases are key and timing’s sacred, great bands get their moment eventually…” Read more about NYU Music Tech Grads Big Ups and their first world tour here.
The Master’s thesis defense schedule is below. All presentations will be in the conference room on the 6th floor at 35 West 4th St.
At the end of each evening, there will be a 30 minute demo session.
