UC Berkeley Department of Music, The Townsend Center, and CNMAT present:

Jean Bresson,
The Current and Future State of Computer-Aided Composition

Jean Bresson will discuss the fundamentals of computer-aided composition and the computational models present in OpenMusic that set it apart from reactive, real-time environments such as Max/MSP. We will conclude with a discussion intended to point to some directions for future research in computer-aided composition and the development and extension of the OpenMusic environment.

Jean Bresson is a researcher in the Music Representation team at IRCAM (STMS lab, Paris, France). He is in charge of research and development on computer-aided composition and involved in several projects centered on connected thematic fields such as sound analysis, synthesis, and spatialization. He is currently the principal developer of OpenMusic and he created or contributed to an important number of specialized tools and libraries for this environment. He is also the author of numerous scientific publications and co-edited, with Carlos Agon and Gérard Assayag, a series of books on computer-aided composition and the use of OpenMusic.
