Algorithmic accompaniment improvisation?

Author Algorithmic accompaniment improvisation?
flabby
Just wondering if anyone knows of any interesting software/projects that deal with algorithmic accompaniment for someone improvising live?

I'd be very interested in anything that could accompany live percussion (or melodic for that matter).

Maybe a system that deal with question and answer? Let's say where the musician plays a question and the software provides the answer.

Thanks!

MAX or Pure Data are the two development platforms that can be used to build that kind of thing.

Pure Data is opensource, but very similar to MAX, which is commercial.

Ah sorry, I should have said, I'm aware of MAX and Pure data. I was thinking specific examples. Maybe they could be MAX or PD patches.

If you are interested in this idea and in doing your own Max programming, there is an old book from the MIT press specifically devoted to this topic. It’s pretty academic but there are a lot of good ideas in it. It’ll def convince you that what you are asking for is “a big ask.”

Hahaha! I imagine it is a big ask!
Thanks for the link

I think I've seen mentioned that george lewis (voyager) and david behrman both have stuff ported to max but I've never seen the patches....maybe you're a better googler than me...
