One of the co-founders of my favourite music notation software (Musescore) visited Singapore last week to give a COIL seminar entitled: 'MuseScore: Inside A Successful Open Source Project For Musicians'. For those of you who missed it, you can see a recorded version of the talk here:
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:
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.
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
Title: Morphing Music According to a Long-term Tension Profile and Detected Patterns
When: Wednesday 20th April, 2016 at 12h
Where: Ircam, salle Stravinsky
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.
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.

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".
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.
