Anssi Klapuri - Gamified musical instrument learning: music processing techniques and learning curve optimization

Date: 
Wed, 03/19/2014 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm
Location: 
Rm 217, CCRMA classroom, 660 Lomita Drive, Stanford
Event Type: 
Colloquium
 Playing a musical instrument and playing video games share certain similarities as activities. That has enabled successful music-oriented games such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero, but even more importantly, gamified e-learning applications seem to have particularly high potential for learning certain aspects of musical instrument skills. This talk shares experiences from developing the game GuitarBots, where any real guitar is used as a game controller and the microphone signal is analyzed to figure out the user’s actions.
