The goal of this thesis was to implement a tool that, given a digital audio input, can extract and represent rhythm and musical time. The purpose of the tool is to help develop better models of rhythm for real-time computer based performance and composition. This analysis tool, Riddim, uses Independent Subspace Analysis (ISA) and a robust onset detection(More)
The rapid development of network communication technologies has allowed composers to create new ways in which to directly engage participants in the exploration of new musical environments. A number of distinctive aesthetic approaches to the musical application of networks will be outlined in this paper each of which is mediated and conditioned by the(More)

The Cube is designed to support spatial computer music research and performance, art installations, immersive environments, scientific research, and all manner of experimental formats and projects. We recount here the design process, implementation, and initial projects(More)
Musical open works can be often thought like sequences of musical structures, which can be arranged by anyone who had access to them and who wished to realize the work. This paper proposes an innovative agent-based system to model the information and organize it in structured knowledge; to create effective, graph-centric browsing perspectives and views for(More)
