Digital Stradivarius

For centuries, luthiers have failed to duplicate a Stradivarius. We're now passing a remarkable threshold when sensors and computers can exceed the performance of nature at this level of description, so that a mathematical description of an instrument can become a playable instrument. In this project we are creating the instrumentation and algorithms to let computers develop real-time models to emulate the observed performance of complex driven physical systems.
