WHAT ARE POSSIBLE WITH A COMPUTERIZED MUSIC?
The computer, by its ability to generate sounds, has long been recognized as a musical instrument. Although synthetic, these sounds have brought out new forms of expressiveness whose main movement is electronic music. But in parallel with the development of sound synthesis, producing sounds that are ever richer and more complex, computer science has experienced an explosion of automatic analysis means. Analysis of sounds of course, but also texts (scores) and gestures: the computer becomes composer, orchestra all by itself, but also, and it is certainly more difficult, musician following the instructions of a composer or d ‘an interpreter and acting in harmony with the other musicians in the flesh, them. All this is integrated into the Antescofo software, which we present to you …
Antescofo (in English) is a software, fruit of the combined efforts of the teams of Inria and IRCAM. It is a partition follower system and a synchronous programming language for music composition.
Arshia Cont, head of the Inria-Ircam-Cnrs MuTant joint team, explains the fundamentals and applications, in images showing the musicians performing works and interacting with the software.
The module allows automatic partition tracking from a real-time audio stream from a musician’s game. Thanks to this new synchronous language is today the machine that adapts to the game of man and not the opposite … Appear, in the order of execution: Claude Delangle (saxophonist), Philippe Manoury ( composer), José-Miguel Fernandez (RIM), Ichiro Nodaïra (composer) and Marco Stroppa (composer).
