Embedding native audio-processing in a score following system with quasi sample accuracy


This paper reports on the experimental native embedding of audio processing into the Antescofo system, to leverage timing precision both at the program and system level, to accommodate time-driven (audio processing) and event-driven (control) computations, and to preserve system behaviour on multiple hardware platforms. Here native embedding means that audio computations can be specified using dedicated DSLs (e.g., Faust) compiled on-the-fly and driven by the Antescofo scheduler. We showcase results through an example of an interactive piece by composer Pierre Boulez, Anthèmes 2 for violin and live electronics.
