Researcher position (W/M) - Inedit project

Researcher position (W/M)
Fixed-term contract of 12 months from April 1 2015

Full time one year position at Ircam R&D department starting.

Introduction to IRCAM

IRCAM is a non-profit organization that is associated to the Centre Pompidou (Centre national d’art et de culture Georges Pompidou). Its missions comprise research, production, and education related to contemporary music and its relation to science and technology. Within the R&D department specialized teams are conducting research and development in the areas of acoustics, sound signal processing, interaction, computer music and musicology. IRCAM is located in the centre of Paris near the Centre Pompidou, at 1, Place Igor Stravinsky 75004 Paris.

Introduction to Inedit project

This project is embedded inside the MuTant team-project at Ircam R&D department and in charge of the development of the AscoGraph graphical User Interface.

The MuSync project lies at the intersection of two important problems in Computer Music: Realtime Recognition and Extraction of musical data from audio signals. (Machine Listening) ; Realtime Synchronous Programming in Computer Music.
The coupling of the two themes, often considered as disjoint, is at the heart of music practice (from music composition to performance). The idea is bring such capabilities to computers on both music composition (programming) and music performance (realtime synchronous), as in the image of their human counterparts.
MuSync is home to the real-time recognition software and synchronous language Antescofo, used by musicians and artists around the world and laureate of the popular science 2011 “Prix de La Recherche” in France, French Industry Award (2013) among others.

Position description

The development mission consists of ensuring the development of the graphical user interfaceAscoGraph dedicated to the Antescofo realtime system and language. AscoGraph [1] is a GUI for authoring and performing (monitoring) of mixed music score involving human musicians and computers in realtime. AscoGraph aims at becoming the interface for authoring of mixed music scores, covering the entire chain of authorship and production at long term.

The principal activities of the mission includes :

1.    Co-design : User experience design in terms of authorship and graphical editing experience of mixed music scores,
2.    Analysis of user experience relative to internal usage (Ircam Production) and Antescofo/AscoGraph commmunities (100+ active members) and their synthesis in terms of software development.
3.    Integration of various graphical and calculation APIs
4.    Software packaging and documentation for various platorms (OSX, Windows, Linux, iOS)
5.    Development of music score interchange formats for Antescofo user workflow

Required Experiences and Skills

Essential:

  • Solid background in software design principles and C/C++/Objective-C
  • Solid background and passion for realtime computer music
  • Solid background in computer language and parser developement.
  • Familiar with music software protocols (audio, MIDI, musicXML, OSC)
  • Experience with multi-platform GUI development (OpenFramework, Juce)
  • Ability to read and understand music notations
  • Practice of collaboration with artists and researchers

Desired:

  • Software development experience for realtime and mobile devices
  • Familiarity with realtime music signal processing
  • Familiarity with realtime scheduling issues
