Sound Library of Ambient Sounds for Cinema“] Over the past decade, first the SATIS department, and the ASTRAM laboratory, and now the PRISM laboratory (Perception Représentation Image Son Musique) have developed a project to creation a browsable, online library of ambient sounds called “Sons du Sud”. This project is currently entering a new phase of development with the creation of a specially-developed thesaurus and the realization of an interface that provides an ergonomic and didactic tool for indexing sounds (sounds intended for audio-visual professionals, more specifically sound editors). Rémi Adjiman will present his current work, research subjects and possibilities. It is also possible he will present the current “Sons du Sud” website, keeping in mind development is scheduled for the end of 2018. This project is supported by the SATT PACA, PRIMI, and AFSI (Association Professionnel du Son à l’Image).

I wish to present on my ongoing work with the Modalys Induction Connection – created as a result of my Musical Research Residency in 2013. This presentation (an updated version of the one I gave in Santiago at a previous Forum) will begin with a general overview, followed by a series of audio examples drawn from my recently created project documentation pages: http://magneticpiano.com/?page_id=378
This will be followed by additional examples from a piece I am currently composing, for piano and electronics, commissioned by Keith Kirchoff as part of his EAPiano Project. These new examples feature two main components: my experiments with modeling a grand piano bichord struck by a hammer, and additional experiments with the use of the Induction Connection. For most of these examples I first created a ModaLisp text document to generate audio files, then added code to generate an mlys script for real time use in a Max patch.

This presentation will focus on the creation of the work Namenlosen, premiered at the Philharmonie 2 de Paris in June 2017 by the Ensemble Intercontemporain. I will discuss the use of the language Antescofo and its connections with Pnoramix (new graphical interface for Spat) and to CSound (for the generation of synthesis in real-time). I will provide a few examples of uses of multiple times and writing as well as a library of spatialization with automatic source assignment.

The MotionComposer is a therapy device that turns movement into music. The newest version uses passive stereo-vision motion tracking technology and offers a number of musical environments, each with a different mapping. (Previous versions used a hybrid CMOS/ToF technology). In serving persons of all abilities, we face the challenge to provide the kinesic and musical conditions that afford sonic embodiment, in other words, that give users the impression of hearing their movements and shapes. A successful therapeutic device must, a) have a low entry fee, offering an immediate and strong causal relationship, and b) offer an evocative dance/music experience, to assure motivation and interest over time. To satisfy both these priorities, the musical environment “Particles” uses a mapping in which small discrete movements trigger short, discrete sounds, and larger flowing movements make rich conglomerations of those same sounds, which are then further modified by the shape of the us
er’s body.

A presentation of a fancy Antescofo Library converting mathematical parametric functions into curves controlling Spat sources’ trajectories. The outcome of these processes are X, Y and Z or Azimut, Elevation and Distance you can scale and convert to suitable data.
My aim is to present and propose a collaboration with a forum member – a programmer – to further develop this library and achieve a more simple human readable scripting such as the ‘Turtle’ python library. https://github.com/nadirB/Spat_Trajectory_Score_Library
10:30am-11am Andrea AGOSTINI 
The project I present here is a simple textual programming language meant to ease the manipulation of the data structures of bach (an extension of Max for musical representation and computer-aided composition). Its goal is facilitating the representation of non-trivial processes and algorithms, specifically in the context of musical formalization. This is, in general, something not easily achievable in Max without resorting to writing code in some established, general-purpose programming language (C, C++, Java, JavaScript and more) through dedicated APIs whose bindings with Max tend to be cumbersome and, in some cases, inefficient because of the deep underlying differences in the programming paradigms and data representations. On the contrary, the language I propose is meant to be extremely simple and tightly integrated to the Max environment and the data structures of bach. The project is the outcome of the Musical Research Residency I carried out at IRCAM in 2017.

I developed a program that simulates a virtual quintet (drums, bass, piano, and another instrument) of jazz soloist(s). This ensemble grooves and has a wide range of controls for the rhythmic parameters of the groove. It is easy to make all the instruments play together following a soloist, give them more freedom, have them play poly-rhythmically, follow different inputs individually (audio or MIDI file, microphones, Omax, etc), control different parameters of the performance, etc. This gives a more natural feeling to the instruments. The ensemble can also follow variations in tempo and variations in the intensities of any given inputs. Concerning harmony, chords with 6 notes are generated in real-time depending on the notes played by the instruments. This virtual quintet is an innovative tool that can be set up to play different styles with a broad range of sounds.

‘Diálogos franciscano(n)s’, for flute and electronics, is linked to new technologies—like voice and sonic modelling (provided by Ircam Trax v3), audio spatialization, spectral morphing—, musical ekphrasis, numinosity, intertextuality and extended performance techniques. The piece is an artistic transmedialization of a stained glass made by Frère Éric for the Eglise romane de Taizé (France) depicting St. Francis of Assisi surrounded by six birds. The listener seems to hear how 6 different sound sources (representing birds) appear at 4 equidistant spots (representing trees) and start emitting signals from the periphery to the center, where the flutist (representing St. Francis) is located, while rotating counterclockwise at constant speed and transforming themselves into children’s voices (representing angels), just before the birds seem to take off rapidly. The flutist rotates almost constantly over his/her vertical axis to follow the apparition of the mentioned sound sources and answer to each of the emitted bird songs with his/her flute by playing in a somehow canonical way (hence the title) their corresponding transcriptions, which are connected by passages characterized by the use of extended performance techniques.
