The Music Representations team carries out research and development into the symbolic representation of musical structures, languages and computer paradigms adapted to music. This work finds application in both computer assisted composition (CAC) and computer-based musicology. Reflection into the high-level representation of musical concepts and structures supported by original computer languages developed by the team, leads to the conception of models, which can be used for both musical production and analysis.
On the creation side, since its distribution to a large community of musicians, the software has provoked new ways of thinking, which exploit the computer possibilities for simultaneously representing and executing the final score, its formal underlying structures and their generative processes. It is important to note that a work elaborated in such a way contains, to a great extent, its own structural analysis. On the musicology side, the representation and modelling tools enable a truly experimental approach, injecting considerable dynamism to a discipline still under-represented in France.
