Beyond Minus Ones: VirtualBand

VirtualBand is an interactive system that produces high-quality musical accompaniment of human improvisations. The system produces stylistic databases by capturing essential elements of the playing style of accompanying musicians from analysis of their recordings. During performance, VirtualBand uses these databases to back-up musical improvisations.
