Real-Time Performance Interaction with a Computer-Controlled Acoustic Piano
This article describes what it believes to be the first instance of real-time interaction between performer and computer that is entirely within the realm of acoustic piano sounds.
An experiment in musical composition
The experimental results presented include comparative statistics of the successful syntheses using each of the eight orders of analysis, examples of melodies generated by low, medium, and high-order synthesis, and confirmation of degeneracy and other effects predicted by the theory.
