CONCERT DISTRIBUTION ON INTERNET
Experiment of a live concert distribution on Internet by Ircam and the Computer Research Center of Cnam (Cedric).
Dates : Saturday, 18th and Sunday 19th October 2003, sessions from 03:00pm and 07:00pm
Physically, the musicians will be on different locations although they have to play "virtually together" in real time. Each one of them will send his audio flux that the other will hear. To be able to play together, the other musicians will receive the feedback thanks to a device that synchronizes the audio flux and that was developed as an object of the jMax library software.
This synchronization requires a steady latency regarding the restoration of the sound. The musicians will play faster than the music they hear ; however, they will be able to play together in a synchronized way. A virtual metronome will allow the musicians to get used to the network latency.
Thanks to distant supervision of the musicians' outputs, an engineer will be able to control their audio flux (volume, local latency...) so that the public can be part of this virtual concert.
Nicolas Bouillot : synchronization and metronome
