Title: Support for MIR prototyping and real-time applications in the ChucK programming language
- There is no general purpose language for MIR prototyping that both gives access to analysis building blocks and allows for low-level coding
- This sort of framework can be really useful for fast prototyping, flexible coding, and education
- There is furthermore no such framework that does this that combines MIR and performance / synthesis; ChucK does this.
- We're going to show what is available in the language, and examples of how to work with it to accomplish MIR tasks
Background & Motivation
- MIR & performance
- How peformers/composers have used MIR-like algorithms, & what tools they use
- Why performance should get more attention from MIR!!!
- What is MIR, really?
- What good are MIR tools doing for the world?
- How is an MIR researcher supposed to evaluate and improve his/her work?
- MIR prototyping
- Define prototyping for our purposes; why is it important? (+ side benefits)
- What tools exist
- A short history
- Examples of how to use the language (esp. UGens & time control)
- OTF & timeliness make suited for prototyping, but not originally for analysis
- In summary, our goal was to modify ChucK & build tools in it to foster a tighter connection between MIR and performance, and to provide fast prototyping capabability in a new framework for MIRers
Recent additions to ChucK to allow for prototyping and realtime MIR
- Say what they are, ...
- Available features!
Reference ICMC paper and make note of cool areas this opens up, but which we don't have time to discuss here (side benefit: make it clear that this isn't a copy of the ICMC paper)
introduce some "working pipelines"
intent: give reader a feel for "if I have an idea and want to code it quickly, how would this work in chucK?" (and why would I not use matlab, m2k, etc.) ge? the working pipeline to my brain is busted
- intent: show that chuck indeed works for MIR tasks, that it is indeed a concise and nice syntax, flexible, powerful, etc.
- case study 1: bergstra artist/genre ID (shows above specifically)
- case study 2: examples from Stanford class (shows some real uses by performers)
- case study 3: AYYYYYYYGY
For each, say what it does, why it is good, but why ours is different
- Matlab real-time stuff
- Supercollider & Max/MSP externals
conclusion & map out future work
Discussion /take-home points
- ChucK has expanded to a new frontier
- We will be continuing to work on it, driven by our own applications as well as requests from the ChucK user community
- Future work
- file I/O is coming soon
- online repository of templates and examples (like SMELT) that can get people started
- modeling (HMMs)
