Abstract:

This article offers an analytical overview of the currently available software technologies designed to assist in creation, dissemination, and most importantly performance of interactive electroacoustic art. By grouping the software into two basic groups based on their interfaces, the author’s aim is to provide a comprehensive list of two groups’ strengths and shortcomings, therefore exposing common issues that arise whenever a composer utilises such software interfaces in performance settings. Finally, as an incentive in solving a number of given problems, the author will present RTMix, his own software creation that has been designed primarily as a standardised interface for the purpose of easier production, performance and dissemination of the interactive electroacoustic artwork.
