06.17 - Intl Conf on Mathematics & Computation in Music @ Ircam

Members of MuCoaCo attended the MCM (Mathematics and Computation in Music) meeting held at Ircam (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique) this week.

MuCoaCo alum, Anja Volk, and Aline Honingh co-hosted a panel on "Bridging the Gap: Computational and Mathematical Approaches in Music Research."

On the first evening was a dialog with Pierre Boulez and Alain Connes coordinated by Gérard Assayag at Ircam's Espace de Projection.

We had a group picture with Gérard in the Ircam corridor. From left to right: Isaac Schankler, Anna Huang, Gérard Assayag, Anja Volk, Elaine Chew, Jordan Smith, Aline Honingh.

Isaac and Jordan presented a paper on "Emergent Formal Structures of Factor Oracle-Driven Musical Improvisations" and Isaac gave a demonstration of Mimi on the final day of the conference.  The paper is described in this earlier post.
