The EMS Computer Music Project is both a research and
a teaching facility.
Founded in 1984, it fulfills its double mission by promoting
the creation of new musical compositions as well as the development
of new tools for sound design, sound analysis, sound visualization
and automatic score editing that, in turn, benefit classroom and
studio teaching. CMP is used by faculty and students in the
School of Music's Composition-Theory Division, although visitors
with valid projects are welcome. Courses and seminars offered
in the Computer Music Project constantly attract numerous students
from a variety of other University of Illinois departments.
CMP users have an
ongoing exchange of ideas, share information amongst each other, and
present their work at music festivals and professional meetings such as
ICMC (International Computer Music Conference), SEAMUS (Society for
Electro-Acoustic Music), ISMIR (International Society for Music
Information Retrieval) and SuperComputing conferences.
The manager of
CMP is Sever Tipei.
Scott Wyatt serves as the director of the
Experimental Music Studios.
