The pilot of the TROMPA project aimed at choral practice has been well received by people who have tested it, according to a series of tests carried out.
The people who have tested the pilot have contributed with ideas and proposals to improve various functionalities of the application that will be incorporated shortly.
Today we have released the Music Enthusiasts use case working pilot to be tested during the following weeks! We are currently running online testing with real users to validate the functionalities of the tool.
The TROMPA project has as a main goal the enrichment of music public-domain archives. In these difficult days of confinement, some musical institutions are opening their music archives to facilitate remote access, from home, to their music spectacles. The TROMPA project consortium has made a compilation of these initiatives to provide recognition and contribute to their visibility.
We hope you will enjoy!
The TROMPA team
During the last six months, we've focused on refining the requirements and goals of the pilot to attract more contributors. We've done multiple workshops to evaluate the usability and users' perception of different demos.These workshops allowed us to refine the workflow of the application, and to include new features to engage users.
In the TROMPA Choir singers use case, we are using multi-lingual singing voice synthesis to support individual choir singers rehearsal. During the first two years of the project, we have identified the users requirements, developed a working prototype and improved the synthesis models. Now, we are almost ready to start sharing our tools with choir singers! But, how did we get here?
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Videodock hosted a two day meetup (20-21 Jan 20) for all TROMPA developers and developing partners to demonstrate, discuss and decide on the most recent versions of the TROMPA software components.
Videodock presented the latest version of the TROMPA Multi-modal component, a toolkit that handles search and retrieval of data from the Contribution Environment to other applications. This enable user-facing applications to tap into the rich data that is stored within the shared Contributing Environment.
