The Fluid Corpus Manipulation project is on some of y’all’s radar, because @Rodrigo posted a few good words about it. To make a long story short, we have various machine listening and learning tools to help tackle programmatically sound bank mining in Max and SuperCollider (and Pd in progress) on MacOS, Windows and Linux with all the code open source…
As part of the project design, we commissioned works to get first users feedback on interface decisions and directions and many other things. Rodrigo was part of the first cohort (you can see who else was on the roster here)
Now, in early July we have 8 more pieces coming. We asked all composers to tell us how they (ab)used the tools. You can follow the saga here and I’ll post one per week, which leads us to the gigs. This week, Hans Tutschku explains his approach to polyphonic piano processing, informed by 30 years of practice.
I hope you enjoy!
