Music Improvisation Software: An Interface for People with Severe Disabilities http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-310.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-310.phpTue, 14 Sep 2010 00:00:00 -0400 Music has many virtues — including the potential to benefit individuals whose mobility is severely impaired by cerebral palsy and spinal injuries. In the first of NJIT's new series of Technology and Society Forum presentations, Pauline Oliveros and colleagues from the Deep Listening Institute will demonstrate software that makes it possible to improvise music with slight head movements. This software extends the expressive, holistic and therapeutic benefits of musical improvisation to both adults and children.

NJIT Solar Physicists Report Paradox in Eos: Less Sunlight, But Temps Rise http://www.njit.edu/news/2006/2006-031.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2006/2006-031.phpMon, 23 Jan 2006 00:00:00 -0500 Less sunlight reaching the Earth's surface has not translated into cooler temperatures, according to a team of solar physicists at NJIT. The scientists have observed that the amount of light reflected by Earth has increased since 2000. “Our findings have significant implications for the study of climate change,” said Philip R. Goode, PhD, principal investigator and distinguished professor of physics at NJIT.
