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.
