Second experiment with mobile (tablet) PHENICX interface: live score follower

Last week, during the second Essentials evening of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, we succesfully tested the score follower.
The score follower is already integrated in the iPad app of the orchestra, but we had never tried it live. In order to do this, OFAI needed to analyse the played music live.

The results were very inspiring. Conceptually the users loved the score follower. Technically we managed to create a cloud version of the player application that was as sync as the local version. Content wise the piece we presented, was not the most complex one though. The final test will be the Alpensinfonie in february 2015. A piece with multiple soundscapes that make the live tracking a big challenge.
