Web application using Web Audio API for Recorderology - research concerning playing techniques of recorders
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we outline a documentation method used for our music research project, Recorderology, as developed to operate as a web application usingWeb Audio API. Our aim is to propose an application that enhances the knowledge and experiences of musicians, especially composers, about the recorder family and to encourage their creative activities. In our research project Recorderology, we analyze the correlations between the mechanisms and the actual results of sound production by means of four primary components (instrument model - air - mouth - fingers). This project is carried out through an interaction between artistic research involving collaborations with composers and musicians and scientific research including audio analysis, e-learning and data-mining. In our Web application, we employ a large audio database to describe the mechanism of the playing techniques of recorders along with a graphic user interface with the aim of simplifying the navigation.
