    Abstract

    We describe a system for the automatic generation of a 3D animation of a drummer playing along with a given piece of music. The input, consisting of a sound wave, is analysed to determine which drums are struck at what moments. The Standard MIDI File format is used to store the recognised notes. From this higher-level description of the music, the animation is generated. The system is implemented in Java and uses the Java3D API for visualisation.
