IDeATe Senior Reception

It's almost over! Carnegie Mellon's Class of 2018 will soon be donning caps and gowns and receiving their hard-earned diplomas. A couple of the IDeATe students would like to get everyone together for a bit before the Commencement Weekend festivities begin. If you are graduating with an IDeATe minor or if you otherwise consider yourself to be part of IDeATe, make one more stop in the Hunt Library basement on Friday, May 18th at 3:30 p.m. We'll have food, tassel charms, and camaraderie. Dress snazzy if you can!

Experimental Sound Synthesis at the Phipps

Tweet from Annie Hsieh about Phipps InstallationBeginning in the late April, the Serpentine Room at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden will feature a sound installation from students in the School of Music IDeATe course Experimental Sound Synthesis. This winding room will be the temporary home for a lush plantation in vibrant array of colors, where one might also spot the forest giants emerging from the earth to join the spectacle. As you walk through the space, you will also find yourself immersed by hundreds of sounds coming from all directions, generated by tiny computers hidden among the foliage to guide, invoke, illuminate, and accompany your experience in this space.
