Extended Framework for "In-time" Computer-Aided Composition
EFFICACe is a research and development project funded by the National Research Agency (ANR).
This project explores the relations between computation, time and interactions in computer-aided music composition, using OpenMusic and other technologies developed at IRCAM and at CNMAT. We consider computer-aided composition out of its traditional "offline" paradigm, and try to integrate compositional processes in structured interactions with their external context. These interactions can take place during executions or performances, or at the early compositional stages (in the processes that lead to the creation of musical material). We focus in particular on a number of specific directions, such as the reactive approaches for computer-aided composition, the notion of dynamic time structures in computation and music, rhythmic and symbolic time structures, or the interactive control, visualisation and execution of sound synthesis and spatialization processes.
