Music research

Consultants: Maarten Grachten, Gissel Velarde, Matthias Demoucron, Cyril Laurier, Frédéric Bimbot, Alexandre Tanguy / Yascore.

The Music Team is concerned with two main areas: the multiple facets of music generation, and the challenges of robust music description.

Since its creation, the team developed several pioneering technologies (constraint-based spatialization, intelligent music scheduling using metadata) and award winning systems (MusicSpace, PathBuilder, The Continuator for Interactive Music Improvisation, VirtualBand, Virtuoso, Flow-Machines).

The team's current focus is on the automated generation and representation of contemporary popular music from the perspective of the studio musician.
