Open-House Event at the IRCAM (2015-06-06)

Institute of Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music

associated with Centre Pompidou

 

Video and picture below from the conference of G. Assayag: IRMAC's OMAX software picks up the musical phrases that the musician is playing and creates an accompanying musical composition. The piano in the video is played by the computer.

 

Also an IRCAM browser has been created which compares interpretations of a music piece by different musicians.

Who we are

"IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music, is one of the world’s largest public research centers dedicated to both musical expression and scientific research. A unique location where artistic sensibilities collide with scientific and technological innovation, Frank Madlener has directed the institute since 2006, bringing together over 160 people.

 

IRCAM's three principal activities - creation, research, transmission - are visible in IRCAM's Parisian concert season, in productions throughout France and abroad, in a new rendezvous created in June 2012, ManiFeste, that combines an international festival with a multidisciplinary academy.

 

Founded by Pierre Boulez, IRCAM, a non-profit making association with recognized public utility, is associated with the Centre Pompidou, under the aegis of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. IRCAM and the CNRS are associated in the framework of the STMS Joint Research lab (Sciences et technologies de la musique et du son - UMR 9912) and were joined by the Pierre et Marie Curie University (UPMC) in 2010 and in the framework of the project team MuTant, INRIA."

15h30 | Composition, Improvisation, interaction avec les machines
Des derniers systèmes numériques élaborés avec des musiciens se dégage la notion de « créativité computationnelle ». L’idée n’est certes pas de remplacer celle des humains mais au contraire de l’exalter et la stimuler !
Intervenant : Gérard Assayag

 

 

A202 | Guitare intelligente
Testez deux nouveaux dispositifs d’augmentation de l’instrument : l’un d’accompagnement automatique et interactif (issu du logiciel OMax), l’autre de transformation du son des guitares acoustiques sans haut-parleur grâce au contrôle actif des vibrations.
