Accompaniment of Reproducing Piano

We have been fortunate enough to get a Bosendorfer CUESS Reproducing Piano for our research activities. The instument allows one to measure precise information about a piano performance and to replicate this performance on the piano. We are pursuing several apsects of musical accompaniment systems with this instrument, using the piano both as the solo and accompaniment instrument.

Our work using the piano as the solo instrument is in conjunction with Arnaldo Cohen and the students in his studio. Here is a video of my PhD student, Yupeng Gu, demonstrating this work on the Rachmaninov 2nd Piano Concerto.

Here is a recent paper on this work.
