  • Program: PHC Amadeus (France-Austria)

  • Project acronym: LETITBE

  • Project title: Logical Execution Time for Interactive And Composition Assistance Music Systems

  • Duration: 01/2015 - 01/2017

  • Coordinator: Florent Jacquemard, Christoph Kirsch

  • Other partners: Department of Computer Sciences University of Salzburg, Austria

  • Abstract: The objective of the LETITBE project is to contribute to the development of computer music systems supporting advanced temporal structure in music and advanced dynamics in interactivity. For this purpose we are proposing to re-design and re-engineer computer music systems (from IRCAM at Paris) using advanced notions of time and their software counterparts developed for safety-critical embedded systems (from University of Salzburg). In particular, we are applying the so-called logical execution time paradigm as well as its accompanying time safety analysis, real-time code generation, and portable code execution to computer music systems. Timing in music is obviously very important. Advanced treatment of time in safety-critical embedded systems has helped address extremely challenging problems such as predictability and portability of real-time code. We believe similar progress can be made in computer music systems potentially enabling new application areas. The objective of the project is ideally suited for a collaboration of partners with complementary expertise in computer music and real-time systems.

This year, Pierre Donat-Bouillud has spent 5 months in the University of Salzburg and one month in the University of California Berkeley, in the context of the LETITBE project, before starting his PhD in Mutant. Several other student exchanges and scientists visits between Salzburg and Paris have been funded this year by the LETITBE projetc
