Journées d'Informatique Musicale (JIM24): Keynote: Music, Mathematics, and the Heart: A mellifluous mélange

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Each year, the "Journées d'Informatique Musicale" bring together researchers, developers and different players in musical life using computing as a tool for dissemination, creation, interpretation or pedagogy. The JIMs are managed by the Association Francophone d'Informatique Musicale (AFIM) and are supported by DGCA and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. The JIM 2024 are co-organized by PRISM (CNRS/AMU/Ministry of Culture and Communication), AFIM, Inciam and gmem, and will take place from May 6 to 8, 2024, at la friche (gmem, 6 and 8th May) and at the CNRS Aiguier campus (PRISM, Tuesday 7th May).

Title: Music, Mathematics, and the Heart: A mellifluous mélange

Abstract: Mathematical and computational modeling of music is making inroads into cardiovascular diagnostics and therapeutics. From mathematical and computational modelling of tonality, to capturing expressive variations introduced by performers, to generating sonifications and compositions from heartbeats, to monitoring performer-listener cardio-respiratory signals, with real-time analysis and visualisations, these topics come together to inform arrhythmia experiences and heart-brain interaction. The talk touches upon the conference themes of Disklavier research pioneered by Risset, multimodal immersion, computational music structure analysis, and quantitative analysis of subjective music experience.
