The development of a computer musical accompanist is presented, that attempts to model some of the characteristics of human musicianship, particularly concentrating on the human sense of rhythm, and the playing ‘by ear’ skill set. It specifically focuses on blues accompaniment, and works with no previous knowledge of the particular song that is about to be played. The performance of the lead musician is constantly monitored and reacted to throughout the song. The system is written in Csound and runs in real time.
