Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 1999

    Perry Cook received a BA in music from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Conservatory of Music, a BSEE from UMKC Engineering, and Masters and PhDs in EE from Stanford University. He served as Technical Director for the Stanford Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, and has consulted and worked in the areas of DSP, image compression, music synthesis, and speech processing for NeXT, Media Vision, and other companies. Perry has presented at SIGGRAPHs 94, 95, 96, and 98 in the areas of audio compression, sound and music synthesis, and auditory display. He is currently Assistant Professor of Computer Science with a joint appointment in Music at Princeton University, researching sound synthesis and control, auditory display, and immersive sound environments.  

    SIGGRAPH 1998

    Perry Cook received a BA in music from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Conservatory of Music a BSEE from !the University of Missouri Engineering School and Masters and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. His research centered on computer music, vocal acoustics, and sound synthesis. He served as Technical Director for the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics researching the computer Simulation of musical instruments and the singing voice controllers for real time music synthesis and performance and audio compression. He has consulted and worked in the areas of DSP, image compression, music synthesis, and speech processing for NeXT Media Vision and other companies. Perry taught the audio section of the course in compression at SIGGRAPH 94 and 95. He also organized the course in Sound for Computer Graphics at SIGGRAPH 96. He is currently Assistant Professor of Computer Science with a joint appointment in Music at Princeton University researching human computer Interfaces for the control of sound and music sound synthesis, auditory display, and immersive sound environments.

    SIGGRAPH 1996

    Perry R. Cook attended music school at the University of Missouri, Kansas City Conservatory of Music, and engineering school at the UMKC School of Electrical Engineering. He then earned Masters and PhD degrees in EE at the Stanford University Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), researching the physical modeling of the voice and musical instruments. While at CCRMA Perry also researched and created a number of controllers for expressive real-time music synthesis, and software for interactive music performance and composition. In 1993-4 he was Senior Research Scientist for Media Vision (now AuReal) Inc., designing silicon and software for music synthesis and processing. He returned to CCRMA as Technical Director in 1994, researching and teaching voice analysis/synthesis and psychoacoustics. In January 1996, Perry joined the faculty of the Computer Science Department of Princeton University, with a joint appointment in the Music Department. He continues work in physical modeling, expressive controllers, and psychoacoustics. Perry will be teaching and researching Human Computer Interface Technology, with his interest in how the performer/musician interfaces with the instrument driving projects both in connecting humans to computers and sound, and in the construction of “virtual” performers.  

    SIGGRAPH 1995

    Perry Cook received a BA in music in 1985 from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Conservatory of Music, studying voice and electronic music. He received a BS in Electrical Engineering in 1986 from the University of Missouri Engineering School. He earned Masters and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford in 1990, researching computer music, vocal acoustics and synthesis, and controllers for real-time music synthesis at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. He is currently Senior Research Associate and Technical Director at CCRMA,  researching the computer Simulation of musical instruments and the singing voice, controllers for real- time music synthesis and performance, and audio compression. He has consulted and worked in the areas of DSP, image compression, music synthesis, and speech processing for NeXT, Media Vision, and other companies. Perry first taught the audio section of this course at SIGGRAPH ’94 in Orlando.
