Cellular Automata in electronic music and sonic art

953323__727232828.jpgCellular automata in generative electronic music and sonic art: a historical and technical review :: Authors: Dave Burraston, Ernest Edmondsa ::

This paper will review electronic music and sonic art applications of Cellular automata (CA) in a historical and technical context. Algorithmic and computational processes have been of interest to artists for many years, creating an emerging culture of generative electronic art. Creating patterns and sequences is necessary for the creative artist working spatially and temporally within a chosen medium. CA are capable of a wide variety of emergent behaviours and represent an important generative tool for the artist.

The sonic artist and musician must be prepared to investigate the theoretical background of CA in order to successfully employ their vast behaviour space within compositional strategy. Continue reading

The din board – new ways of shaping sounds

din_curvesnew.jpgdin is noise” is a newly-updated “tone board,” making the rectangular plane of its screen into a field of sound you can transform. Peter Kirn describes it:

Pixels can be tones, transformed onscreen. A resonator editor uses Bezier curves to edit sounds across octaves. Each resonator, in turn, can be edited with yet more Bezier curves. Put them together into the drone editor… and you can create vast, sculpted soundscapes from series of rectangles dragged around between octaves.

It’s all free, and it’s all doable for your mouse – a Linux exclusive that might convince you to dual boot, or take a second look at that netbook. Continue reading
