Playing an instrument is a lot of fun. But with the growing musicianship often the wish comes up with interpreting pieces of music freely and to jam accordingly to a song. With the new Emused app developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT, you can learn musical improvisation in a completely interactive way.
All you need is basic musical knowledge, your instrument, and a mobile device. With several entertaining lessons, you will learn to improvise and improve your musical knowledge at the same time.
The improvisational game is based on Fraunhofer IDMT´s state-of-the-art algorithms for audio content analysis. The main idea behind Emused is to develop a platform-independent prototype application for gamification of music education to run on mobile devices.
Via the internal microphone of the tablet, Emused detects and displays the played notes in real-time and gives immediate feedback of your training success. Emused also tracks your performance over time and allows you to review it afterwards. In this way, you can always check the places where you are having difficulties, and improve your performance level.
Adaptive and intuitive!
Emused helps you learn to improvise with any musical instrument. Thanks to its intuitive graphical user interface, Emused is easy to use, making the musical experience more enjoyable. Emused also adapts to your level and performance.
This means that all the exercises will be created to keep the user challenged and motivated. The development of Emused is planned until spring 2016. This project is part of the Software Campus program, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. At this year´s CeBIT in Hannover, the first version of the app will be shown.
Fraunhofer IDMT presents the prototype version of “Emused” at the booth of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in hall 9, stand D40. There, visitors can train their improvisation skills using the ukulele, piano or their voice.
We look forward to seeing you!

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
