Introducing Cadenza Live - the orchestra that follows you
About Us and Our Timeline
The research behind Cadenza started since the 1990s with multiple National Science Foundation (NSF) funded projects conducted by the current MetaMusic team members at University of Massachusetts Amherst and later at Indiana University Bloomington to serve conservatory-level musicians at the Jacobs School of Music. With the generous support of these academic institutions, MetaMusic acquired the core technology for further development to bring the joy of music to the audience at all levels. Here are a few milestones that have played a pivotal role in MetaMusic's history.
We've partnered with some of the most prolific and innovative conservatories around the globe, bringing musical education and AI together to assist young musicians in their journey to virtuosity.
Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University Bloomington
Bloomington, IN 47408
The IU Jacobs School of Music (JSoM) is one of the most comprehensive and acclaimed institutions for the study of music in the United States. Cadenza is originally known as 'Informatics Philharmonic', coined by Mimi Zweig, professor at the Jacobs School of Music and director of the Summer String Academy. Cadenza has been adopted by many faculty and students in the Jacobs School of Music for teaching, practice and performance. The app has been embraced by the IU String Academy through a regular concert each year in the summer program for the last decade, featuring a full program of students who rehearse and perform with the computer-generated orchestra. JSoM students including Yoo-jin Kim, Marcus Scholtes and Samantha Johnson-Helms have incorporated the app into their recitals, adding an orchestral dimension rarely heard at such events. The app has been employed in numerous master classes, public demonstrations, and teaching scenarios with a variety of faculty including Mimi Zweig, Otis Murphy, Mark Kaplan, Howard Klug, Brenda Brenner, Arnaldo Cohen, and Jeff Nelson. Finally, the technology has been used in new music productions of the works of Jan Beran in otherwise unplayable compositions.User agreement Visit site
