i-Berlioz: Towards Interactive Computer-Aided Orchestration with Temporal Control

  title={i-Berlioz: Towards Interactive Computer-Aided Orchestration with Temporal Control},
  author={Eduardo Reck Miranda and Aur{\'e}lien Antoine and Jean-Micha{\"e}l Celerier and Myriam Desainte-Catherine},
This paper introduces i-Berlioz, a proof-of-concept interactive Computer-Aided Orchestration (CAO) system that suggests combinations of musical instruments to produce timbres specified by the user by means of verbal descriptors. The system relies on machine learning for timbre classification and generative orchestration, and tools to write and execute interactive scenarios. The paper details the two main parts of i-Berlioz: its generative and exploratory engines, respectively, accompanied with… Expand

Leveraging diversity in computer-aided musical orchestration with an artificial immune system for multi-modal optimization
CAMO-AIS has higher diversity of orchestrations than Orchids without loss of perceptual similarity, and Opt-aiNet was developed to maximize diversity in the solution set of multi-modal optimization problems, which results in multiple alternative orchestrations for the same reference sound that are different among themselves.

Computer Generated Orchestration: Towards Using Musical Timbre in Composition
Timbre is a musical attribute that has been largely discussed among the research community. However, there is still a lot to investigate, especially in regards to timbre and orchestration, whichExpand
Real-Time Computer-Aided Composition with bach
It is shown in this article that interactivity is an essential performative aspect of the musical discovery process and that real-time environments immediately react to user input. Expand
OSSIA: Towards a unified interface for scoring time and interaction
A notation for the use of conditional branching in interactive scores will be introduced, based on a high level formalism for the authoring of interactive scores developed during the course of the OS-SIA research project. Expand
Musical Acoustics, Timbre, and Computer–Aided Orchestration Challenges
Developing a system capable of automatically identify perceptual qualities of timbre within orchestral sounds that could enrich current and future computing systems designed to aid musical orchestration. Expand
The Continuator: Musical Interaction With Style
The Continuator is a system that bridges the gap between two classes of traditionally incompatible musical systems, based on a Markov model of musical styles augmented to account for musical issues such as management of rhythm, beat, harmony, and imprecision. Expand
A system of interactive scores based on Petri nets
It is claimed that a new kind of systems is needed for composing interactive musical pieces that would provide a composition environment for building musical parts as well as programming tools for specifying interaction computation. Expand
Computer-Assisted Composition at IRCAM: From PatchWork to OpenMusic
In recent years, IRCAM has been exploring and developing software for computer-assisted composition (CAC). These software packages allow composers and musicologists to formalize and experiment withExpand
Computer-Aided Orchestration Based on Probabilistic Instruments Models and Genetic Exploration
A machine learning method based on generative probabilistic modeling to represent and generalize instrument timbre possibilities from sample databases and deduce the timbre of any mixture of instrument sounds is proposed. Expand
The OM Composer's Book 3
This third volume of the OM Composer's book series presents a new collection of essays written by composers describing musical works carried out with the OpenMusic computer-aided composition environment, to provide an overview of the uses and applications of this environment. Expand
