Noah is a violinist, composer, and computer-music person from New York. He just finished his undergraduate at Stanford, double majoring in both ”Music, Science, and Technology” and “Symbolic Systems (Computer Music)”. He’s beginning a masters at Stanford next year to continue composing at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). As an undergraduate, Noah received a grant to compose for 10 weeks in Berlin, wrote pieces for visiting ensembles, and had his work performed in graduate-level contexts.
Noah has deep knowledge in all things sound and music related. He has studied music theory, history, avant-garde, and classical composition techniques, such as orchestration and film scoring. He has built his own instruments with DIY electronics, composed pieces for hundreds of speakers, and written traditional music for string quartets and other ensembles.
A lot of his coursework has explored the overlap with computer science and music, from algorithmic composition to AI and machine learning in musical contexts. He is excited to teach (and learn from) anyone curious about sound, coming from any background or experience level!
