Conducting and Performing Virtual Orchestra
There are a lot of people who have had yearning for conducting orchestra. It must be a very pleasant experience to coordinate orchestra performance with your own conduct, but it requires a vast amount of money. With such needs, there have been researches to simulate the situation of conducting orchestra by using gesture recognition [Usa][Baba][Sunagawa]. But, they do not generate performance scenes. Schertenleib, et al., generated performance scenes by using 3DCG model instruments [Schertenleib]. However, performance information such as slur is not considered at generation of performance scenes. Our research aims at representing the situation that an orchestra is playing with 3DCG by considering performance scene generation. Our purpose is to represent the atmosphere close to the one a user actually conducts the orchestra.
