Creation of a real-time granular synthesis instrument for live performance
Opie, Timothy Tristram (2003) Creation of a real-time granular synthesis instrument for live performance. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis explores how granular synthesis can be used in live performances. The early explorations of granular synthesis are first investigated, leading up to modern trends of electronic performance involving granular synthesis. Using this background it sets about to create a granular synthesis instrument that can be used for live performances in a range of different settings, from a computer quartet, to a flute duet. The instrument, an electronic fish called the poseidon, is documented from the creation and preparation stages right through to performance.
