Real-Time Automatic Accompaniment Implementation in Python


Day 2, R0 10:50–11:35

What would it be if the computer could accompany human automatically?

Automatic accompaniment is a research topic which is proposed 35 years ago. Nowadays, this is still a very attractive topic. e.g. a musician plays the main melody of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"; the computer performs the accompaniment part adapt for the musician's tempo. That is to say, the system must be able to "listen to" musician in real-time.

In this talk, I will share the topic background, problem definition, the approaches I tried, and show the accompaniment result with a performer.

As an entry-level session, everyone is welcome to attend. It will be better if you are interested in music tech.
