This book discusses all aspects of computing for expressive performance, from the history of CSEMPs to the very latest research, in addition to discussing the fundamental ideas, and key issues and directions for future research. Topics and features: includes review questions at the end of each chapter; presents a survey of systems for real-time interactive control of automatic expressive music performance, including simulated conducting systems; examines two systems in detail, YQX and IMAP, each providing an example of a very different approach; introduces techniques for synthesizing expressive non-piano performances; addresses the challenges found in polyphonic music expression, from a statistical modelling point of view; discusses the automated analysis of musical structure, and the evaluation of CSEMPs; describes the emerging field of embodied expressive musical performance, devoted to building robots that can expressively perform music with traditional instruments.It is the preference score we will focus on in the survey. ... From 2008, the competition had three sections: an a#39;autonomousa#39; section, a a#39;type-ina#39; section and an open section. ... The second term of reference is polyphonic ability and refers to the ability of a CSEMP to generate expressive ... described in our survey, if applied separately to each part of a non-monophonic performance, could lead to parts having.
