Abstract:

Stephen Travis Pope introduces and compares various software programs for computer music and live performance. He focuses his analysis on the possibilities to manipulate and represent the high-level abstractions of musical data structures.

List of software:

  • Sound Kit (sampled signal editing tool)
  • Kyma (music composition package)
  • ARA (knowledge-based software to describe work)
  • DoubleTalk (predicate-transition or PrT diagrams)
  • MODE (compositional algorithms and tools)
  • Alternate Reality Kit (visual programming)
  • ThinkerToy (modeling decision support)
  • Chinese Temple Design Toolkit (aid in the process of refinement of a design)
