FOF Granular Synthesis and Resynthesis


This article examines the possibilities afforded by recent software developments of working at the intersection of the time and frequency domains. It investigates the relationship between the FOF algorithm, originally used in the CHANT program, and more traditional approaches to granular synthesis, and considers how they can be combined (FOG). Compositional and aesthetic issues arising from working with sound at this ambiguous intersection are investigated.
