We present a survey of research into automated and semiautomated computer systems for expressive performance of music. We will examine the motivation for such systems and then examine the majority of the systems developed over the last 25 years. To highlight some of the possible future directions for new research, the review uses primary terms of reference(More)
This paper reports the current level of development achieved by our research into brain-computer music interfacing (BCMI), which is aimed at special needs and Music Therapy, in addition to the entertainment industry. It surveys the technology developed to date at ICCMR and glances at work-inprogress designs informed by cognitive experiments. Research into(More)
The braincap, as described in 3001: The Final Odyssey, the concluding edition of Arthur C. Clarke’s science Ž ction classic, is the ultimate humancomputer interface: it connects the brain to a system that is able to read thoughts and upload new information. The wearer can in minutes acquire new skills that would otherwise take years to master. Currently,(More)
This paper introduces a novel application of bionic engineering: a bionic musical instrument using Physarum polycephalum. Physarum polycephalum is a huge single cell with thousands of nuclei, which behaves like a giant amoeba. During its foraging behavior this plasmodium produces electrical activity corresponding to different physiological states. We(More)
In this paper we report on the synthesis of sounds with cellular automata (CA), specifically with an extended version of the multitype voter model (MVM). Our mapping process is based on DSP analysis of automata evolutions and consists in mapping CA histograms onto sound spectrograms. This mapping allows a flexible sound design process but due to the(More)
