Granular Synthesis and Resynthesis Interactivity Real-time Algorithmic Music


This article outlines some of the technical and aesthetic issues arising from the author’s works which involve computer technology directly in live performance. A process of experimentation in algorithmic composition is described, particularly in relation to aspects of form and ways of automating musical processes at various structural levels. This approach emphasises the need for efficient use of technological resources in order to convey expressive content accurately.
