New article on the MoprheuS music generation system in IEEE Transactions of Affective Computng

I'm please to announce the latest article I wrote together with Prof. Elaine Chew on MorpheuS, published in IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. The paper explains the inner workings of MorpheuS, a music generation system that is able to generate pieces with a fixed pattern structure and given tension.

New Survey article on music generation in ACM Computing Surveys

A new journal article was published that I wrote together with Prof. Ching-Hua Chuan and Prof. Elaine Chew. The article is a survey on current music generation systems from a functional point of view, thus creating a nice overview of current challenges and opportunities in the field. The articles covers systems ranging from game music, to real-time improvisation systems and emotional movie music generation systems.

Research visit to Singapore at A*STAR and IEEE TENCON

Last week I was in Singapore to present the MorpheuS research I have performed on my Marie-Curie grant at IEEE TENCON. The title of my talk was "MorpheuS: Automatic music generation with recurrent pattern constraints and tension profiles". I was also invited to give a seminar on "Machine learning and optimization applied to digital music" at the High Performance Computing Institute at A*STAR in Singapore. A short abstract of the talk at A*STAR:

Talk at Harvey-Mudd College

On my way through Southern California, I was invited by Prof. Robert Keller, who works on the impro-visor, to give a talk at Harvey-Mudd College in Claremont, CA on July 23rd. The topic of the talk was focused on my Mary-Curie project (MorpheuS): "An automatic composition system for structured music based on optimisation and machine learning".
