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 and performance of MorpheuS Hadyn at TENOR, Cambridge (UK)

Today I gave a talk at TENOR, The Second International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation in Cambridge (UK). There were many interesting session on the latest music represenatation technologies. My presentation focused on the tonal tension model, which I have developed together with Elaine Chew, and how this is implemented in the polyphonic music generation algorithm called MorpheuS.

Invited seminar at IRCAM, Paris about the MorpheuS music generation project

I will be in Paris next week to give an invited seminar on the MorpheuS music generation project at l'institut de recherche et coordination accoustique/musique (IRCAM) in Paris. Read the full announcement on Ircam's website

Talk at ORBEL30 At the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL)

I'll be giving a talk on "Music generation with structural constraints: an operations research approach" at ORBEL30, the national conference of the SOGESCI-BVWB, the Belgian Operational Research (OR) Society, Member of EURO, the association of European OR Societies, and Belgian representative of IFORS (International Federation of OR Societies). The conference is hosted by the Catholic University of Leuven (UCL) at Louvain-la-Neuve on January 27th and 28th.

Talk at Imperial College London on generating structured music with local search optimisation and machine learning

I'll be giving a talk on generating structured music with local search optimisation and machine learning. The seminar is organised by the Department of Computing, at Imperial College London and will take place on the 14th of October at 15:30.

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".

From music theory to machine learning for evaluating generated music - Talk at UCSD

While travelling through Southern California, I stopped at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), to give a talk on generating structured music. Professor Shlomo Dubnov organized a talk for a summer school currently going on at UCSD on July 15th.
