ComParser is computer software for the recognition of audio in realtime.
The software can be trained to pseudo-scorefollow (certain) musical compositions.
The word pseudo-scorefollowing means to say ComParser actually uses no
symbolic score at all, and, it only vagely knows the exact location during following.
The software may also be used to filter commercials, jingles or otherwise annoying tunes
from ones radio or television set (you will need some additional MIDI-hardware or make some minor adaptions
to the sourcecode to do so).
The software is written in ANSI/ISO C as far as possible. Sourcecode, binaries, documentation and examples
may be downloaded from http://kmt.hku.nl/~pieter/SOFT/.
ComParser is free open source software developed by the Schreck Ensemble.
It has been presented during a masterclass in computer music at the
Centro Ricerche Musicali in Rome, june 21, 2003; and applied in
performances of Hans van Eck's compostion
Poemi Eterni, Tiziana Pintus
playing the violin (in Rome and Sassari in 2003, and in
De Witte Dame in Eindhoven in 2004).
