Abstract:

Ge Wang's talk explores how we shape technology, and how technology shapes us in turn. Using computer music design as a vehicle, we will examine (with demos!) everyday examples of design: tools, instruments, toys, games, and social experiences, while breaking down the design of music programming languages, instruments for laptop orchestra, toy-like apps like Ocarina for the iPhone, and games.

It is based on Ge Wang's new book, ARTFUL DESIGN: TECHNOLOGY IN SEARCH OF THE SUBLIME

Speaker Bio:

Ge Wang is an Associate Professor at Stanford University, at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) in the Department of Music (also Computer Science). He specializes in artful design — researching programming language and software design for music, interaction design, laptop orchestras, aesthetics of technology-mediated design, and education at the intersection of engineering, art, and the humanities.

Ge is the creator of the ChucK music programming language, the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk), the Co-founder of Smule (reaching over 200 million users), the designer of
the iPhone's Ocarina and Magic Piano, and a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow.
