News: ScoreCleaner Notes - transcribe your ideas for iphone

Swedish DoReMIR Music Research releases ScoreCleaner Notes, an app that enables anyone who can play, whistle or sing a tune to have it rendered instantly into correct notation. You can then publish the results to social media, and extend it into a full score using the notation software ScoreCleaner Desktop.

In 2011 the Swedish company DoReMIR Music Research launched the plug & play notation software ScoreCleaner, a very precise and easy-to-use notation software that revolutionized the European market for digital notation. Now the company has released an iPhone app, ScoreCleaner Notes, which lets anyone play, sing or whistle any melody and instantly turn it into music notation

Songs from the app are stored in ScoreCleaner Cloud. By registering a free account with ScoreCleaner Cloud from inside the app, the user gets unlimited space for their songs. The cloud also makes it possible to sync with the desktop version of ScoreCleaner, to arrange and develop the music further.
"ScoreCleaner Notes is a perfect tool for every songwriter that comes up with new musical ideas regardless of where they are. Just sing a melody and save it, share it or continue to develop the music further on your computer", Says founder and Professor Sven Ahlbäck from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm

ScoreCleaner Notes is built on academic research in music cognition, which seeks to explain how humans understand music on a basic level and how to decode it. From that research, DoReMIR designs different products that understand musical phrasing and artistic intent.

"Our goal is to design software which is at the service of music and people, not the other way around. With this powerful technology we can produce a complete product line of creative tools for writing music. The next releases are an iPad app and polyphonic audio recognition for the desktop version", says Founder and Professor Sven Ahlbäck.

ScoreCleaner Notes’ features:
• Displays your monophonic input in standard notation
• Intelligent interpretation of pitch, time signature, rhythm & meter, and tempo

Chris Duarte Group / Chris Duarte new album scheduled to release on Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Master bluesman Duarte delves into many styles of blues rock music on this crisp recording and listening to it will stretch your musical horizons even more on Shrapnel Records' Blues Bureau Label.

Chris Duarte's NEW CD - My Soul Alone

Chris Duarte Group emerged on the scene out of Austin, Texas in the early 90’s and gained notoriety after wowing a packed room of industry insiders at the South X Southwest convention.

In the wake of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s passing, Duarte quickly gained a national reputation as young man imbued with a playing style comparable at times to the late guitarist.

After fielding interest from a number of labels, Duarte signed to Silvertone Records and his debut album “Texas Sugar/Strat Magik” reportedly sold in excess of 100,000 units in the United States, no small feet for a blues/rock guitarist. This coupled with Duarte’s strong commitment to touring, was the impetus for Chris’ winning the “Best New Talent” in Guitar Player’s 1995 Reader's Poll. He also finished fourth in the magazine’s “Best Blues Guitarist” category that year behind legends Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and B.B. King.

Throughout the last decade, Duarte honed his chops as a guitarist, songwriter and singer as he recorded three more critically acclaimed records, “Tailspin Headwhack” in 1997, “Love Is Greater Than Me” in 2000 and “Romp” 2003, the latter two of which were on the Zoe/Rounder label.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Duarte has constantly worked on his growth as a musician and the years of recording culminated purposefully in “Blue Velocity”, “Vantage Point”, “396” with Bluestone Company, Something Borrowed Something Blues, Infinite Energy, Blues In The Afterburner and now, “My Soul Alone”. All Duarte’s records aptly showcases many sides of this brilliant artist in the context of high energy blues rock with moments that bring to mind legendary artists as diverse as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robin Trower, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Johnson and “My Soul Alone” contains some of best performances of his career.

Chris’ recordings have always been rooted firmly in the blues with a rock and roll edge which further established Duarte as one of the rare musical talents of his generation. “My Soul Alone” continues in the tradition of smokin’ blues with spurts of jazz and psychedelic I nfluences popping up throughout. “My Soul Alone” contains a heavy dose of Duarte’s legendary blues guitar chops over a diverse set of grooves and lyrical themes.

The Blues Bureau label has developed a strong following for its superior blues rock recordings. Chris Duarte takes his place among artists in the label's legacy that includes such blues/rock legends as Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, Eric Gales, and Leslie West.

Chris’ masterful guitar and vocal performances on “My Soul Alone” portend a great response from these loyal music lovers, as guitarists of this quality and intensity are few and far between.

The Chris Duarte Group has been a perennial touring act since the 1990's, playing as many as 200 dates a year, and has developed a legion of loyal fans spanning across the United States, Europe and Japan.

Guitar Player Magazine has revered Duarte, and its readers have named him one of the greatest guitarists in the industry in a reader’s poll.

Fans of guitar-oriented music have followed Chris Duarte for over a decade and the internet will soon be buzzing with anticipation for this phenomenal record.

As a guitarist Duarte has been compared to some of the greatest players of all time. This record, while featuring some of his most impressive and extended guitar work to date, also reveals him to be a strong singer/songwriter in the blues/rock genre.
