I have wanted to create this blog for a long time, to promote a project of innovative software for music creation with computers. This project has been in my head almost since I started to create music, and today its shape has become more evident. That’s why now I’m going to communicate about it !
I think that available tools for music creation have unlimited functionnalities today, but are lacking of a “human side”. Associated human-machine interaction paradigms are kind of outdated, mainly because they are based on 20 years old standards, or based on hardware appearance, without the physical controls. As a consequence, these tools are, for me, more efficient as production tools than as composition tools, the computer being a troublemaker instead of stimulating the creative gestures. So, I think that today there is a need of tools that speak the language of composers, instead of tools for which composers need to learn a language…
My first attempt there has been developed for the KVR Developer Challenge 2012, and is called Inspiration. Check it out !
And the second one is called Guitar Gadgets. It has been developed for the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.
