Vivace - Web Application for Piano Performance Evaluation, 2021.
The dominant piano performance evaluation models are based on metrics such as playing correct notes and global tempo. These metrics are often limited in capturing emotive aspects of performance, which can be seen through slight variations a performer chooses to employ in their playing. In order to capture some of these variations, we built a web application, called Vivace, that serves to compare the user's playing to that of professional recordings of the same piece. The users playing is plotted in real time on a tempo-volume graph, alongside performances by great pianists such as Rubinstein and Horowitz.
