MusicTechFest – Friction Drum

On Saturday Karmen and Miha presented the electric version of the Friction Drum instrument (a folk instrument well known in Slovenija, as well as other parts of the world) at Music Tech Fest in Ljubljana. The presentation was awesome, as well as the demo of them playing. I managed to make a few pics with my mobile phone (thus, the quality) and a short video (see below).

MusicTechFest – Compositional hierarchical model

Today, Manca, Luka and I presented the Compositional hierarchical model at the Music of Science session at Music Tech Fest in Ljubljana. As a part of his undergraduate degree, Luka built an awesome transcription editor which uses the CHM as classifier. It will probably never reach version 1.0 since the “ideas” stack grows exponentially. However, we are planning on providing a freeware version shortly.

Manca showed how the CHM can be used for music generation – aka. how to build a hammond we can’t afford :)

Češka – day 5 in 6

Včeraj je bil še en dan konference. Veliko predavanj, ki porodijo nove ideje. Zvečer smo šli na pivo z Nemci in IJSjevci (research purposes :) ).

Čehi so čudni. Večina kulture je tuje, tudi suvenirji. So pa mahnjeni na zlatnino.

Povsod je vse vsaj 50% "znižano".

Danes je zadnji dan predavanj. Nekaj zanimivih utrinkov …

Ker je vse "deep", se tudi zagovorniki drugih pristopov trudijo utrditi svoj položaj.

Še en Machine Learning and Music "workshop". 2 prispevka v enem workshopu od iste avtorice. Jaz sem bil edini iz MIR scene na tej delavnici.
