Audio chips, e-textiles, touch interfaces: 40 years of computer music research

25th June 2020

Adrian Freed is the former Research Director of UC Berkeley’s CNMAT, the historical Californian research centre led for over two decades by the late David Wessel. At CNMAT, Adrian led a number of influential projects on computer music, including the widely used Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol, developed with Matt Wright.

Adrian published his first paper in 1975, at a time where computers were out of reach, and he started hacking with digital and analog chips. As technology progressed, he worked on the Fairlight CMI and powerful processors for the time, that would cost less than $10 today. He dedicated his research to the new field of computer music, and went on to build systems ranging from analog designs to e-textiles.

In this talk, we’ll hear from Adrian’s long career, and the exciting new project he is working on, the FingerPhone.
