This is F*****G great! Especially the Bach BWV 1006 - I could have sworn it really was a kid playing.

Hi all,

My PhD research has swept me into the direction of automatic music
performance.  In particular, generating realistic-sounding audio
from sheet music.  In particular, going from a .ly file with a
single staff of violin music to a wav file that sounds like it was
performed by a violinist with 1-2 years of experience.

For example, this:

\relative c' {
 \set Staff.instrumentName = "violin-1"
 \key d \major
 \time 4 = 72

 a4\f d fis8-. a-. r4
 d16( cis b a) g4 \breathe e8\p( g) fis4

becomes this:
with no manual tweaking, human input, or recorded audio samples.

Many more examples, audio, video, and theory, on my website:
