Composing Music in the Cloud

Presentation video of Counterpoint Composer and LinnStrument

Just a note that a presentation on Counterpoint Composer that I gave to a wonderful audience at the J-Fall conference in Holland has been published.  Here’s the video, in which I play the LinnStrument to help convey concepts discussed in the presentation.  And, yes, I did butcher Bach’s Prelude in C.  Definitely need to do more woodshedding 🙂

Here’s the abstract for the presentation: Leveraging the power of Cloud Services, this session demonstrates how music can be analyzed and composed in real-time to augment musical performance with a futuristic instrument. This session contains an introduction to relevant cloud services, and an introduction to music theory and composition. This session also has musical demonstrations and code snippets scattered throughout.
