In 2003, I presented to Ircam a proposal for a long-term research project on the subject of computer-assisted orchestration. [...] Key Method The orchestration procedure uses large pre-analysed instrumental sound databases to offer composers a set of sound combinations. This procedure relies on a set of features that describe different aspects of the sound. Almost 10 years after the start of this project, it is time to look back at what was accomplished from the musical stand point, and to open some new…Expand
