Composing & Automatic Score Following

In the field of computer music, whether developing automatic score following projects is worth the effort is a debated question. While some composers find it absolutely necessary, others have been disappointed with the early results, or question the artistic need, and don't want to consider it.

Yesterday at Ircam, Arshia Cont presented the anticipatory score following system Antescofo.

The most important in Arshia's approach is that beyond technical considerations, he underlines the importance of the creative act. When you compose music for traditional instruments and live electronics, you should strive to conceive the electronic music at the same time as the written notes. The paradigm of the "instrumental score" separated from the "electronic music instructions" should have disappeared already!

Thanks Arshia for your presentation, it's always a pleasure to see you!
