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

12.03.2015

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!

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
