Computer aided score generation of Balinesian Gender Wayang music, based on multi-channel envelope recordings. The recording system required a custom acquisition system as multi-channel audio interfaces were not available in the early 1990s. It was implemented by Thomas Ruoff and Pierre Dutilleux at FH and ZKM, Karlsruhe. I was involved in the later stages that dealt with the analysis of the accumulated data. Most of this was done in Matlab and its signal processing toolbox. Finally, a custom notation system was devised to take the specific playing styles into account.
