Local traditional arts people and the city’s traditional music preservation society have eagerly wished a technology to accurately score traditional music, especially Tsugaru Shamisen. This music will be preserved as scores, which avoids relying solely on the oral transmission of this music to the young performers. At this time, we have experimentally produced an “Electronic Shamisen” equipped with a pick-up microphone attached to each string and automatic scoring equipment, which automatically records scores from the sound source with an agent method.
