AI Computing Synthesizer Synthesis and Resynthesis Techniques


In this somewhat technical article, the author investigates the possibility of developing an artificially intelligent (AI) system for sound synthesis that would allow composition with sounds thought of in terms of abstract descriptions and operations rather than low level computer programming. He examines the means of mapping a composer’s intuitive motion of sound structure on to the parametric control of electronic sound synthesis; focussing on the problem from a musician’s point of view, rather than from a solely technological one.
