Your interactive music teacher - "Emused" is the first app for learning musical improvisation


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.

With the new Emused app you can learn musical improvisation in a completely interactive way.

Fraunhofer IDMT

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!
