We report on the progress of GiantSteps, an EU-funded project involving institutions from academia, practition-ers, and industrial partners with the goal of developing new concepts for intelligent and collaborative interfaces for music production and performance. At the core of the project is an iterative, user-centric research approach to music information retrieval (MIR) and human computer interaction (HCI) that is designed to allow us to accom-plish three main targets, namely (1) the development of in-telligent musical expert agents to support and inspire mu-sic makers, (2) more intuitive and collaborative interfaces, and (3) low-complexity methods addressing low-cost de-vices to enable affordable and accessible production tools and apps. In this paper, we report on the main findings and achievements of the project's first two years.
