The improvement of digital communication networks increased the interest towards Networked Music Performance both for entertainment and education. One of the main issues that affects the effectiveness of remote performances is the inherent network latency in the communication chain.

Abstract

The improvement of digital communication networks increased the interest towards Networked Music Performance both for entertainment and education. One of the main issues that affects the effectiveness of remote performances is the inherent network latency in the communication chain. In this paper we propose a technique that, to the best of our knowledge, is the first work that explores the use of adaptive metronomes in order to track the tempo of the musicians and help them in coping with the latency. We test our proposal with preliminary experiments in the context of chamber music.
