Gregory Beller (IRCAM) – Voice Synthesis Technologies in Contemporary Music Creation
Speaker: Gregory Beller (IRCAM)
Greg Beller works as an artist, a researcher, a teacher and a computer designer for contemporary arts. He defended a PhD thesis in Computer Science on generative models for expressivity and their applications for speech and music, especially through performance. While developing new ideas for signal analysis, processing, synthesis and control, he takes part in a range of artistic projects. He is currently the director of the department for Research/Creativity Interfaces of IRCAM, where he coordinates the works of the researchers, the developers, the computer music designers and the artists in the creation, the design and the performance of artistic moments.

His research has been devoted to the semantics and pragmatics of spoken and signed languages, to philosophical logic and the philosophy of language, to primate communication, and more recently to some aspects of music cognition.
Gregory A. Bryant (UCLA) – Animal signals and emotion in music
IRCAM, June 9th, 2016
Speaker: Prof. Gregory A. Bryant (University of California, Los Angeles)
Gregory A. Bryant is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at University of California, Los Angeles. He received his Ph.D. in cognitive psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2004.
