Undergraduate students are working with Assistant Professor Carmine Cella on computer-assisted orchestration and machine learning.

This semester, visiting undergraduate researcher from China, Hongfu Liu, is interning at CNMAT. His topic is: 

Deep Learning Approaches for Computer-Assisted Orchestration

Computer-assisted orchestration is a recognized topic in Music Information Retrieval (MIR).  Systems ‘Orchidea’ and ‘Ato-ms’ have been used by composers in different communities for many years.

Machine learning and deep learning have promising applications in assisted orchestration. Hongfu will work closely with Dr. Cella to develop new approaches within deep learning to expand perspectives on the problem.
