      DMARC, Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, invites you to a seminar by Prof Roger Dannenberg from Carnegie Mellon University.

      Tuesday, June 7, 3pm-5pm, CSG01

      Title: Music Understanding and the Future of Music Performance

      > Abstract: Music understanding is the automatic recognition of pattern and structure in music. Music understanding problems include (1) matching and searching symbolic and audio music sequences, (2) parsing music to discover musical objects such as sections, notes, and beats, and (3) the interpretation and generation of expressive music performance. In spite of some impressive results, music understanding is only beginning to find a range of applications. I will describe how current research might impact music performance in the future through intelligent audio editors, computer support for popular music performance, and intelligent music displays.

      > Bio: Roger B. Dannenberg is an Associate Research Professor in the Schools of Computer Science, Art, and Music at Carnegie Mellon University, where he is also a fellow of the Studio for Creative Inquiry. His pioneering work in computer accompaniment led to three patents and the SmartMusic system now used by over one hundred thousand music students. He also played a central role in the development of the Piano Tutor and Rock Prodigy, both interactive, multimedia music education systems, and Audacity, the audio editor.

      Dannenberg is also known for introducing functional programming concepts to describe real-time behavior, an approach that forms the foundation for Nyquist, a widely used sound synthesis language. As a composer, Dannenberg’s works have been performed by the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, the Pittsburgh Symphony, and at many festivals. As a trumpet player, he has collaborated with musicians including Anthony Braxton, Eric Kloss, and Roger Humphries, and performed in concert halls ranging from the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem to the Espace de Projection at IRCAM. Dannenberg is active in performing jazz, classical, and new works.
