The post-doctoral fellow will develop new algorithms for learning multimodal embedding spaces, linking together symbolic, acoustic and perceptual representations of orchestral effects. To that end, the fellow will adapt zero-shot learning to musical content by developing architectures specifically tailored to the nature of audio signals
and symbolic scores. Therefore, specific transforms will be developed to incorporate multivariate time series struc- tures. The second part of the position aims to extend embedding spaces through variational learning with a specific information content measure, in order to discriminate the different dimensions of these spaces, and also allow for processes that generate music directly from the spaces. Finally, the fellow is expected to explore these regularities in musical data to study the underlying metric relationships and perform semantic inference on the data. This implies the creation of functional and usable interfaces for musical creativity, and testing these new softwares directly with composers.
The candidate will have to handle :
- Algorithms for learning multimodal embedding space
- Adapting zero-shot learning to musical content for both audio signals and symbolic scores.
- Assessing embedding spaces through variational learning
- Exploring metric relationships and semantic inference on musical data.
- Creating simple interfaces for these approaches
- OSC communication system for interfacing with Max / MSP and OpenMusic
- Creating packages for demonstration and final distribution
- Musical experiments and applications.
The candidate shall demonstrate
- Excellent knowledge of Bayesian inference and variational approximation. - Excellent knowledge of optimization and heuristic.
- Excellent Python skills and programming style.
- Good knowledge of probabilistic normalizing flows.
- Good knowledge of signal processing.
- High productivity, methodical and creative work
- Independence and good communication.
- Musical knowledge is a plus.
Within the Research and Development department, the Musical Representation (http://repmus.ircam.fr) research team develops innovative algorithms for interfaces of musical composition, production, improvisation and analysis. The ACIDS group (acids.ircam.fr) will be the main host.
