Abstract : Score following research is one of the active disciplines of sound and music computing since almost 30 years that have haunted both algorithmic and computational development in realtime music information retrieval, as well as artistic applications in interactive computer music. This paper explores the creative use of such technologies and brings attention to new scientific paradigms that emerge out of their artistic use. We show how scientific and artistic goals of score following systems might differ and how the second, continuously helps re-think the first. We focus mostly on the musical goals of score following technologies which brings us to an underestimated field of research, despite its obviousness in creative applications, which is that of synchronous reactive programming and its realization in Antescofo.
