distributed research experience for undergraduates

Katie Wolf - DREU Experience 2010

University of Minnesota - University of Southern California


This summer I will be working within the MuCoaCo (Music Computation and Cognition) group on the Distributed Immersive Performance (DIP) Project. There are two main goals for the project this summer: (1) to formalize a method for the extraction of expressive musical performance parameters through Midi file alignment, and (2) to quantify ensemble coordination using the recordings of the Tosheff Piano Duo (above) of Poulenc's Sonata for Four Hands and the extraction method formalized in (1).

Over the course of the summer the first goal was addressed with the goal of completing the second goal as a part of my Univeristy of Minnesota's Honor's Thesis.

My final report for the summer project can be found here.
