LUNCZ: Creating Music Using Data
Luncz allows musicians to record a 10 second snippet of live music played on an acoustic or an amplified instrument, and analyzes the recording to extract the notes, the tempo, and the intensity level of the music. Using this data, Luncz generates new music to accompany the musician.
The music being played by Luncz was not designed for listening. Instead, using the right tempo and harmonics, Luncz helps the musician to stay within the musical context of the original idea, and leaves enough room for this idea to be developed.
