Soutenance de thèse de José Echeveste

IRCAM - Mon, 05/18/2015 - 23:00

"Un langage de programmation pour composer l’interaction musicale". 22 mai, 10h

José Echeveste soutiendra sa thèse de doctorat, réalisée à l'Ircam au sein de l'équipe Représentations musicales - projet MuTant, intitulée :

Un langage de programmation pour composer l'interaction musicale.La gestion du temps et des événements dans Antescofo.

Jury

La soutenance de thèse se fera devant un jury composé de :

  • Pr. Béatrice Bérard, Université Pierre et Marie Curie
  • Pr. Gérard Berry, Collège de France
  • Dr. Dumitru Potop-Butucaru, INRIA Rocquencourt
  • Pr. Pierre Cointe, École des Mines de Nantes (rapporteur)
  • Pr. Miller Puckette, University of California, San Diego (rapporteur)
  • Pr. Marco Stroppa, Musikhochschule de Stuttgart
  • Dr. Arshia Cont, Ircam-INRIA (encadrant)
  • Dr. Jean-Louis Giavitto, Ircam-CNRS (directeur)
Résumé

La musique mixte se caractérise par l'association de musiciens instrumentistes et de processus électroniques pendant une performance. Ce domaine soulève des problématiques spécifiques sur l'écriture de cette interaction et sur les mécanismes qui permettent d'exécuter des programmes dans un temps partagé avec les instrumentistes.

Ce travail présente le système temps réel Antescofo et son langage dédié. Celui-ci permet de décrire des scénarios temporels où des processus de musique électronique sont calculés et ordonnancés en interaction avec le jeu d'un musicien ou plus généralement avec un environnement musical. Pour ce faire, Antescofo couple un système de suivi de partition avec un système réactif temporisé.

L'originalité du système réside dans la sémantique temporelle du langage adaptée aux caractéristiques critiques de l'interaction musicale. Le temps et les événements peuvent s'exprimer de façon symbolique dans une échelle absolue (en secondes) ou dans des échelles relatives à des tempos.

Nous présenterons les domaines de recherche apparentés à Antescofo en musique, en informatique et en informatique musicale. Nous aborderons les caractéristiques du langage et de la partie réactive d'Antescofo qui ont été développés pendant cette thèse en particulier les stratégies synchronisations et les différents contrôles du temps et des évènements permis par le système. Nous donnerons une sémantique du langage complet qui formalise le fonctionnement original du moteur d'exécution. À travers une série d'exemples d'applications issues de collaborations artistiques, nous illustrerons les interactions temporelles fines qu'il faut gérer entre une machine et un instrumentiste lors d'un concert. Le système Antescofo a pu être validé à travers de nombreux concerts par différents orchestres d'envergure internationale.

Computational modeling of early language acquisition – Bridging the gap between acoustic input and high-level linguistic representations

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 05/18/2015 - 19:00
Date:  Fri, 06/19/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar It is amazing that all of us as infants learn how to parse the auditory environment around us. Okko Räsänen is here at Stanford as a PostDoc, and coming to CCRMA to talk about his work on understanding how infants learn to segment words out of the acoustic stream. This is a special post-quarter seminar, and I think the topic is important to anybody that thinks about high-level understanding of sound.

Who: Okko Räsänen (Stanford and Aalto University)
What: Computational modeling of early language acquisition

Lunch Presentation at BEK - Vinyl Moves

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Mon, 05/18/2015 - 17:49

Karen Eide Bøen and Roar Sletteland is about to develop a dance performance with the working title Vinyl Moves. At BEK they present the ideas, development and process towards performance, and show us some abstracts. After the presentation we serve a light lunch. Welcome!

Vinyl Moves will consist of four turntables and a dancer. The turntables are modified so that the speed can be adjusted infinitely in both directions, and the pin is moved mechanically to different locations on the disc. The dancer has to be equipped with motion sensors and will control the turntables using these sensors. The dancer dances and plays at the same time, creating a sort of concert where the music is a result of the movements.

What is the relationship between body, sound, turntables and room? It may involve an LP disc as stored movement, as solidified vibrations, and as sound being revived matter. And it will directly or indirectly focus on sound and dance as social interactions.

Rad #7 NORSK RETORIKK

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Mon, 05/11/2015 - 07:49

Det innsamlede materialet er nå satt sammen og skal tilgjengeliggjøres. Vi ønsker å samle så mange som mulig av bidragsyterne samt lesere av NORSK RETORIKK til en markering av dette, samt uformell meningsutveksling. Det vil bli anledning til å ta med seg en gratis kopi av fanzinen NORSK RETORIKK. Kom gjerne forberedt på fri muntlig utveksling utover kvelden om tema og innhold.

Ja, vi elsker retorikk, vi er fanget av den, fengslet av den. Vi får ikke puste, men det er deilig og vakkert som japansk Kinbaku bondage. Norge er en ung nasjon, vi fant desverre oljen før vi hadde fått utviklet noen tradisjon for sannhet. Jeg hører meg selv gjenta argumentene: Vi må bore for miljøets skyld. Norsk gass er bra for klima. Ved å utvinne nye felter i nord skaper vi økonomisk vekst i det globale sør. De låter mistenkelige, men de stemmer jo også på et vis? Store hyper-størrelser settes opp mot hverandre. Jeg klarer ikke tenke klart. Bedre å tie stille. Kanskje applaudere den gode mediehåndteringen. Jeg elsker god mediehåndtering.

NORSK RETORIKK startet med et opprop til 50 forskere, kunstnere, filosofer, skribenter og andre meningsbærere. Vi inviterte bidragsyterene til å sende oss materiale til en retorisk manual, NORSK RETORIKK. Oppropet ble sendt ut grunnet en opplevelse av å ha vokst opp i en retorisk villedende kultur.

Leseren oppfordres til å kopiere den opp på en lokal institusjon og spre videre i sitt faxnettverk eller ved bruk av internettet. NORSK RETORIKK finnes også som digital kopi ved forespørsel.

Rad er en serie hendelser satt sammen av Espen Sommer Eide og Anne Marthe Dyvi for BEK / Bergen senter for elektronisk kunst. Rad#7 er støttet av Bergen Kommune.

English: Rad is a series of singular events curated by Espen Sommer Eide and Anne Marthe Dyvi for BEK – Bergen Centre of Electronic Arts. For Rad #7 we invided 50 researchers and artists and writers to contribute to a manual of NORWEGIAN RETHORIC. This project is based on the peculiar feeling of growing up in a society with a specific type of all encompassing rethoric. Gradually we become accustomed and disillusioned by the arguments of the type: “We have to drill for oil in the Arctic to save the environment (otherwise other nations with worse technology will make a mess)”. The manual will be released in both physical fanzine format and digital copies with the call to copy freely on home printers and institution photocopiers.
