Spectromorphology Interactivity Visual Representation Morphology


Interactive electroacoustic music that alters or extends instrumental timbre, samples it, or generates sound based upon data generated in real time by the performer presents a new set of challenges for the performing musician. Unlike tape music, interactive music can continuously vary its response and, frequently, performers are unable are to predict how the computer will react. Many, if not most, scores include no visual representation of how the computer may affect the sound of the instrument.

Providing performers with a readily accessible visual representation of the sonic possibilities of interactive computer music will provide a conceptual framework within which performers can understand a piece of music. Interpretation of this type of notation by the performer will provide a perspective on how his or her acoustic instrument relates to the digital instrument. This can be especially useful when improvised or aleatoric methods are called for.

This paper outlines a system of interactive computer-music descriptive notation that links pictographic representations to the system of spectromorphologies suggested by Dennis Smalley. The morphological notation (MN) uses these morphologies and adds a z-plane to the well-established time-vs-pitch schema. Ideally, MN will not only represent the sound data of the moment, but also will be an intuitive picture of the musical possibilities of a composition’s electronic component. information bupropion a102 stendra online in india information about amorphous fluticasone more info about drug memantine about buy cheap generic caverta ciprofloxacin eye buy caverta in malaysia memantine canada buy generic namenda sildenafil citrate 100mg oral jelly uk in india buy wellbutrin sr buy kamagra online usa information buy ciprofloxacin eye drops gleevec in california azithromycin 250 500mg tablets in usa bactrim ds tablets imatinib prescription otc ciprofloxacin price enalapril 2.5 mg best price cernos buy modvigil uk in france azithromycin without prescription paypal azithromycin cheap cfc fluticasone arcalion 200mg in mexico vasotec cost buy modalert no prescription allit orlistat 60mg in mayami arcalion sulbutiamine 200mg tadalafil 20mg generic gefitinib quinine sulphate 300 mg tablets generic imatinib prices in new york buy armodafinil canada in united states generic antibiotic bactrim information about buy cotrimoxazole sustanon organon modvigil online azithromycin nova scotia health stores bactrim ds bid fluticasone salmeterol in uk bactrim for bronchitis in india bupropion 3332 buy gleevec super kamagra usa more cutivate cream azithromycin oral piracetam mexico best pricing for viread in new york buy tenofovir cipla enalapril 80 buy cheap super p-force sustanon without prescription generic bupropion orlistate buy memantine uk orlistat online avanafil stendra nuvigil mexico gleevec cost at caremark
