Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the GimmeDaBlues app for iOS devices, by Sonicability Inc., which allows the user to play a jazz/blues quartet, playing trumpet and/or keyboard, while being automatically accompanied by a virtual bassist and drummer. The application can also be used as an educational tool as an automatic play-along generator, allowing the user to concentrate on style and timing issues, while the app automatically takes care of selecting the right notes and chords, or used as a handy mobile sketchbook, using the recording and exporting features. A brief survey on related musical apps currently available on the Apple App store will be presented, as well as ongoing developments to include in future versions.
