Composing for an ensemble of atoms: the metamorphosis of scientific experiment into music

Bob L. Sturm
2001 Organised Sound  
The author discusses the process of using a simulated 'atom trap' to compose a piece that doesn't require a physicist to appreciate.  ...  The methods do require the composer to be trained in physical principles.  ...  It is interesting to note that most people perceive a logic underlying the sounds, as well as a process guiding the composition.  ...

Music Out of Nothing? A Rigorous Approach to Algorithmic Composition by Iannis Xenakis [article]

Peter Hoffmann, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Christian Martin Schmidt
It is shown that Xenakis, unlike many computer music composers, had no ambition whatsoever to emulate traditional musical thinking with the computer.  ...  Being a radical instance of a pure algorithmic composition, GENDY3 is, in a precise mathematical sense, a computable music: every aspect of its sonic shape is defined by an algorithmic procedure called  ...  In the case of algorithmic composition, a composer is to invent the algorithm that is to produce the music.  ...

Anacoustic Modes of Sound Construction: Toward a Practice

Seaback Robert
2021 Zenodo  
Techniques by Brün, Xenakis, and Tone elucidate the anacoustic concept and form a basis for identifying sonic parameters unique to their methods.  ...  This paper concludes with an expanded view of virtual semiotics based on current artistic research by the author, which establishes a symbiosis of anacoustic modes with standard digital practices.  ...  It is a pattern, not a presence." 16 dualistic conception of information and materiality can be seen in various strands of sonic computing-from the practices of auditory display to algorithmic composition  ...

Dynamic Music Representations for Real-Time Performance: From Sound to Symbol and Back

Grigore Burloiu
2016 Zenodo  
We design and implement a real-time performance tracker using the audio-to-audio alignment of acoustic input with a pre-existing reference track, without any symbolic score information.  ...  This thesis contributes to several facets of real-time computer music, using the construct of dynamic music representations as a platform towards the online retrieval and processing of information from  ...  But perhaps most importantly, the score serves as a guide to the musical performance.  ...
