“My Jazz Band”
Interactive musical installation for multi-touch screen.
“MyJazzBand” is an interactive musical installation that allows up to four users to play in a virtual jazz band, using a custom-developed graphical interface on a multi-touch display. The users can play piano, trumpet, alto or tenor saxophone, using four virtual keyboards that dynamically adapt to the ongoing tune’s chord changes, accompanied by a virtual bassist and drummer.
The installation uses specially developed algorithms for the automatic real-time generation of jazz bass and drums, as well as the dynamic mapping and chord-voicing calculation of the right notes to play, so that the users can fit in, even without any previous musical knowledge.
