by Michael Keller

This is a short film focusing on computer science professor and inventor Ge Wang, the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra. He is an assistant professor in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics and cofounder of musical app maker Smule.

Ge combines computer science and music to compose and perform “via various electro-acoustic and computer-mediated means.” He also uses his skills to develop apps that allow people all over the world to make music and sing even if they are not musicians. Among his successes is the iPhone app Ocarina, which uses touch points on the phone’s screen and its microphone to create a digital wind instrument. His company has also developed guitar and piano apps.
