Jonathan Bell: Smartvox-Medieval 2019 –Singing medieval music with your smart-phone

SmartVox is a web application dedicated to the apprenticeship of polyphony. It is designed to help musicians of all levels (from children/beginners to professional opera performer) to sing together in tune. It proved to be particularly useful with unfamiliar idioms (such as early polyphony, or contemporary microtonal music), or in productions scheduled with little rehearsal time.  Developed at Ircam by Jonathan Bell and Benjamin Matuszewski, SmartVox owes its realization to a long research process and generous support from the French medieval women vocal ensemble De Caelis. Jonathan bell, composer, is currently research associate with PRISM-CNRS lab in Marseille, and resident at Casa de Velasquez, as a member of French academy in Madrid.
