Chapter
Orchestral blend happens when sounds coming from two or more instruments are perceived as a single sonic stream. Several studies have suggested that different musical properties contribute to create such an effect. We developed models to identify orchestral blend effects from symbolic information taken from scores based on calculations related to t...

Searching for audio samples within a library can be a tedious and time-consuming task. In this paper, we report on the design of a pilot automatic classification system that utilises timbral properties to automatically classify audio samples. At this stage of the study, we have decided to work only with orchestral audio samples. In addition, we con...
Chapter
Advances in technology have had a significant impact on the way in which we produce and consume music. The music industry is most likely to continue progressing in tandem with the evolution of electronics and computing technology. Despite the incredible power of today’s computers , it is commonly acknowledged that computing technology is bound to p...

Research on timbre has produced a lot of work over the last 50 years, whether on analysis of single tone, instrument timbre, synthetic timbre, or perception and emotion. However, there is still a lot to investigate for polyphonic timbre. This aspect is perhaps one of the biggest challenges in the field of computer-aided orchestration. This paper re...

No PDF available ABSTRACT Auditory Scene Analysis (ASA) research has provided knowledge about the principles underlying auditory organization processes and has been successfully applied in computational ASA. Based on these findings, we applied these principles within a musical context. The aim is to understand and computationally model the percepti...

This project aimed to develop a computing system capable of generating sequences of orchestral instrument combinations matching specific perceptual qualities represented by timbre properties.
Article
Orchestration is a compositional practice that consists of writing for several instruments. This process often involves harnessing each instrument's sound to create sonic textures that could not be achieved with a single instrument. These sound fusions are usually sought by composers to express specific perceptual effects. However, the number of po...

Timbre is a musical attribute that has been largely discussed among the research community. However, there is still a lot to investigate, especially in regards to timbre and orchestration, which involves polyphonic timbre: a phenomenon that emerges from the mixture of instruments playing simultaneously. In this paper, we report on the development o...
Article
In this paper, we report on the development of a perceptually orientated and automatic classification system of timbre content within orchestral audio samples. Here, we have decided to investigate polyphonic timbre, a phenomenon emerging from the mixture of instruments playing simultaneously. Moreover, we are focusing on the perception of the entir...

Inspiration and compositional processes are eclectic and different for each composer. For example, some draw inspiration from literature or nature to inform their musical creativity while others use algorithms and computer programs. This paper introduces a computer-aided algorithmic composition system implemented in OpenMusic. We start the paper wi...
Conference Paper

Orchestration is a problem that has been relatively unexplored in computer music until recently. This is perhaps due to its complexity. This paper presents a survey of the field of computer-assisted orchestration. The span of such survey covers different orchestration systems that were initiated by the spectral music movement and developed during t...
