Computer Science Student Presents at Improvising Brain Symposium

Brian Howell, a senior majoring in computer science, presented “Application of Music Analysis Algorithms to Interactive Music Synthesis” with David Halpern of Columbia University and Dr. Robert Keller of Harvey Mudd College at The Improvising Brain Symposium at Georgia State University (GSU) in Atlanta on April 7 through 9. The Improvising Brain is a symposium and concert event that will bring together researchers and musicians to explore music, improvisation, and related brain processes. It is sponsored by the GSU School of Music, the GSU Neuroscience Institute and the Center for Collaborative and International Arts. The paper resulted from work done at a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Brian attended last summer on Intelligent Music Software at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif.
