The music team attended the 20th annual conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) that took place in the city of Delft, The Netherlands, from November 4-8, 2019. The conference featured 4 papers (co-)authored by Sony CSL :
Controlling Symbolic Music Generation based on Concept Learning from Domain Knowledge, from Taketo Akama (CSL Tokyo) Talk and paper
Auto-adaptive Resonance Equalization using Dilated Residual Networks, from Maarten Grachten and Emmanuel Deruty Talk and paper
Learning to Traverse Latent Spaces for Musical Score Inpainting, from Ashis Pati, Alexander Lerch and Gaëtan Hadjeres Talk and paper
Learning Complex Basis Functions for Invariant Representations of Audio, from Stefan Lattner, Monika Dorfler and Andreas Arzt, that won a Best Paper Award! Talk and paper
Also, the team held a demonstration booth. During the breaks and after the talks, they have shown the latest music tools developed in the lab, namely NONOTO, DrumNet and PlanetDrums.
The booth was shared with Sony R&D who showed OpenUnmix, a state-of-the-art open-source tool for source separation. Find the demo here: https://open.unmix.app
We would like to thank Sony R&D again, in particular, Yuki Mitsufuji, for inviting us to participate in the booth.
