⭔ Softwares

DYCI2lib, FLOSS library for human-machine co-improvisation. Python, Max/MSP. 2018-2019. GNU/GPLv3. Source code.
Developed mainly by J. Nika. I contributed to the design of the software architecture, to the implementation of base modules, to the implementation of the different improvisation methods resulting from my thesis work, and to the creation of tutorials.

SPQR, SoundPainting Query Recognition. Max/MSP. 2020. GNU/GPLv3. Source code.
Developed by A. Parmentier during his internship. I contributed to the development as I was the only one in the project with previous expertise of Max/MSP.

Mirapie, Interference reduction software for full-length live recordings. Python3. 2017. GNU/GPLv3. Source code.
Fully implemented by D. Di Carlo during his internship. I contributed to the creation of the algorithms with D. Di Carlo and A. Liutkus. This software was notably used by the MetaMedia Center of EPFL to process parts of the archives of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
