I am deputy director of SONY Computer Science Laboratory Paris, and lead the music research team. The music team conducts research on interactive music listening, composition and performance. Since its creation, the team developed several award winning technologies (constraint-based spatialization, intelligent music scheduling using metadata) and systems (MusicSpace, PathBuilder, Continuator for interactive music improvisation, etc.).
My recent goal is to create a new generation of authoring tools able to boost individual creativity. These tools, called Flow Machines, abstract "style" from concrete corpora (text, music, etc.), and turn it into a malleable substance that acts as a texture. Applications range from music composition to text or drawing generation and probably much more.
Current projects are Flow Machines, a large-scale project sponsored by an ERC Advanced Grant, Praise (Practice and peRformance Analysis Inspiring Social Education), and Lrn2Cre8.
