If you thought the "tablascope" was possibly interesting, consider the following:
Quote:
Abstract. We describe Tabla Gyan, a system capable of improvising
tabla solo
music, a sophisticated percussion tradition from North India.
The system is based on a generative model of the qaida, a central form
in tabla solo based on thematic variation. The system uses a recombi-
native process of variation generation, and lters the results according
to rhythmic and timbral characteristics of each phrase. The sequences
are used to generate audio in realtime using pre-recorded tabla samples.
An evaluation of the system was conducted with seventy users, primar-
ily experienced tabla performer and listeners. With respect to qualities
such as musicality, novelty, adherence to stylistic norms, and technical
ability, the computer-generated performances compared favorably with
performances by a world-class tabla player.
Paper is at: http://paragchordia.com/papers/icccx09_tabla_camera.pdf

And hear the result here. There are 5 tabla solo examples, 3 of which were composed by a computer. Can you tell which ones?

(it's really no contest at all, and you'll hear why).
