What do you want to achieve by attending our meet ups?

I'm looking to meet people with similar interests, both because I'd like to make new friends and because I'm always keeping my eye out for new projects and work to do!

Share what you've done/doing with Music & Technology!

I did a finished MA at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Before that, I did a BA in Computer Science at Oberlin College and a BM in Technology in Music and Related Arts (TIMARA) at Oberlin Conservatory. My portfolio can be found at www.huntermccurry.com Specifically, you could check out my most recent project called LiquidScore - http://www.huntermccurry.com/works/liquidscore.html

What part of combining music with technology do you find most intriguing?

Finding ways to expand the scope of what humans can achieve with their creativity and expressivity. The ability to represent and manipulate musical imagery and sonic material opens up an entirely new chapter in music by allowing the act of composing and manipulating music to be truly interactive. At the same time my background as a practicing and performing instrumental musician makes me feel strongly that physical, tangible objects are important, the role of a performer should not be lost in a sea of technology.
