03.06 - MuSA.RT @ MTSE

Elaine Chew gives a keynote lecture, Tonality Algorithms and Visualization, at the Music Theory Southeast meeting, held at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, this  year.
A large contingent of faculty and students are at the MTSE meeting from Florida State University at Tallahassee, including Clifton Callender and Joseph Kraus pictured below. Adrian Childs of the University of Georgia, a recent collaborator on the organization of MCM 2009 at Yale,  is also pictured below. It was gratifying to see the enthusiasm of the attendees for MuSA.RT, several of whom started cheering for certain tonal centers to win out over others.

03.04 - Zenph Studios

Elaine Chew visits Zenph Studios while in the Carolinas for the Music Theory Southeast meeting.

John Walker gives a tour of their facilities in Raleigh, NC.

MuSA.RT analyzes tonal structures as projected by Glenn Gould's 1955 performance of Bach's Goldberg Variations and Art Tatum's 1933 recording of Tea for Two (shown below). Anatoly Larkin plays with MuSA.RT and tests its analytical limits.

We also let Mimi have a go at the Art Tatum.
