Abstract

Many studies have focused on supporting orchestral performers. In some of these studies, researchers helped multiple players perform without conductors by using a system that conducts the orchestra with artificial, or virtual conductors. Several approaches have been taken in this field. Some conduct players using a conductor made from computer graphics, while others conduct through the changing or moving of figures. However, these studies have not demonstrated how to conduct specific instructions for each player. We propose a group of personalized virtual conductors for a group of players such as an orchestra. To date, the studies of virtual conductors have only addressed a single conductor. However, because the required dynamics, tempo, and nuances are different based on each player's role and part, personalized conduct may be desirable. We developed a prototype that includes a group of personalized virtual conductors and found it has tendency to better for the players and listeners.
