Princeton CS Press Release: April 13, 2003
Perry R. Cook, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Princeton
University (also jointly appointed in Music) has been selected for a 2003 John
Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. The Guggenheim
Foundation has announced 184 Fellows for 2003, from an applicant pool
of 3200 artists, scholars, and scientists. Guggenheim Fellows are
appointed on the basis of distinguished achievement in the past and
exceptional promise for future accomplishment.
Dr. Cook's fellowship project will be research for a new book on the
topic of "Technology and Vocal Expression," exploring the
interaction and influence of technology on the expressive human voice.
The research will take a broad definition of technology, as "any
intentionally fashioned tool or technique," and will look at topics
as varied as megaphones, microphones, sound recording, loudspeakers,
radio, design of vocal performance spaces (from ancient Roman and Greek
theaters to modern opera houses), surgery and drugs, telecommunications,
and the computer.
