By learning the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic features of any musical style, a virtual musician called iMe is being billed as the world's first intelligent musical instrument capable of playing along with any soloist. Developed at the Interdisciplinary Center for Computer Music Research at the University of Plymouth (U.K.), iMe can jam with real musicians by learning their style, or by mimicking the style of any musician from their recorded scores. The iMe program will be made available as open-source shareware.
