The GiantSteps Project: A Second-Year Intermediate ReportWe report on the progress of GiantSteps, an EU-funded project involving institutions from academia, practitioners, and industrial partners with the goal of developing new concepts for intelligent and collaborative interfaces for music production and performance.
At the core of the project is an iterative, user-centric research approach to music information retrieval (MIR) and human computer interaction (HCI) that is designed to allow us to accomplish three main targets, namely (1) the development of intelligent musical expert agents to support and inspire music makers, (2) more intuitive and collaborative interfaces, and (3) low-complexity methods addressing low-cost devices to enable affordable and accessible production tools and apps.
In this paper, we report on the main findings and achievements of the project's first two years.
