Using Computer Accompaniment to Assist Networked Music Performance
This paper proposes a novel scheme for audio communication in synchronous musical performances carried out over computer networks. The proposed scheme uses techniques inspired from computer accompaniment systems, in which a software agent follows the performance of a human musician in real-time, by synchronizing a pre-recorded musical accompaniment to the live performance. In networked settings, we attempt to represent each remote performer participating in the networked session by a local software agent, which adapts a pre-recorded solo performance of each musician to the live music being performed at remote locations.
