Title: Contributions to symbolic music representation, digital lutherie and music programming languages
Date and Place: 06 / 05 / 2019 10:30 in TD-C
Host: Florent de Dinechin
The presentation aims to give an overview of the research activities in Computer Music carried out at Grame (Centre National de Création Musicale) in Lyon. These activities include symbolic music representation (with the Guido http://guidolib.sourceforge.net/ and INScore http://inscore.sourceforge.net/ projects), new digital lutherie and music programming languages. In particular, we will present Faust (https://faust.grame.fr and https://github.com/grame-cncm/faust), a synchronous functional programming language specialized in real-time sound synthesis and signal processing. The talk will conclude with some live demos of Faust, showing how it can be used for a wide variety of audio applications, from small embedded systems to procedural audio on the Web, as well as musical instruments on smartphones.
Yann Orlarey is currently the scientific director of Grame. His research work focuses on the design and implementation of programming languages for musical and sound creation, with a particular interest in lambda-calculus, functional programming, and real-time and compilation techniques.
