Description

Antescofo~ is a modular polyphonic Score Following system as well as a Synchronous Programming language for musical composition. The module allows for automatic recognition of music score position and tempo from a realtime audio Stream coming from performer(s), making it possible to synchronize an instrumental performance with computer realized elements. The synchronous language within Antescofo allows flexible writing of time and interaction in computer music.

Antescofo technology does not need any (offline) training and is intended to be plug-and-play.

Antescofo started out in close collaboration with the composer Marco Stroppa. Antescofo intends to expand the paradigm of synchronization and score following and tends towards a tool for writing of time and interaction in computer music, for both composition and performance. Therefore, it will evolve continually.

Antescofo has been developed as an external module for Max/MSP and PureData programming environments. Antescofo is distributed via IRCAM Forum since November 2009. Ircam Forum members can also benefit from a special discount for the NoteAbility Pro notation software in conjunction with Antescofo.

Antescofo is particularly grateful to composer Marco Stroppa, the main motivation behind its existence and his continuous and generous intellectual support. Since 2007, many composers and computer musicians have joined the active camp to whom Antescofo is always grateful: Pierre Boulez, Philippe Manoury, Gilbert Nouno, Serge Lemouton, Larry Nelson, and others… .
