Description of the challenges faced by the Tech Project

The main aim of the TELMI project is to study how we learn musical instruments, taking the violin as a case study, from a pedagogical and scientific perspective and to create new interactive, assistive, self-learning, augmented-feedback, and social-aware systems complementary to traditional teaching. The challenges faced by the project is to use the technologies provided by the TELMI project as tools for artistic music composition or music performance in concert scenarios.

Brief description of technology

The project technology includes high-level audio and motion capture technologies, as well as physiological data sensors for capturing brain activity (EEG), heart rate (ECG), and muscular activity (EMG) information. Other project technologies included in the project are software for extracting high-level information from the acquired data and a multimodal database for storing, visualizing and retrieving multimodal data.

What the project is looking to gain from the collaboration and what kind of artist would be suitable

We are hoping to extend the dissemination of the technologies developed in the TELMI project by working and collaborating in an artistic scenario. Ideally a suitable artist for our project would be a musician with expertise in string instruments (e.g. violin, viola, violoncello), or a composer, although we would be willing to consider musicians with other backgrounds.
