A short dive into signal processing and machine learning for music
I spent a week at Stanford studying the landscape of Music Information Retrieval. I think I was the only person in the room without a MS or a PhD on the way, so I stayed after class was done every day the workshop leaders would allow to learn more and go further!
I found that my lifetime of both thinking sensitively as a musician and also thinking computationally as a hacker had a meaningful synergy in this space and it was super exciting for me.
The week was capped off by a presentation from Douglas Eck, who brought a great presentation about how to think of machine learning in the arts and some cutting edge research going on in the Magenta project at Google.
Can’t wait to learn more!
