Impromptu : an interactive programming environment for composition and performance
Sorensen, Andrew (2005) Impromptu : an interactive programming environment for composition and performance. In Proceedings of the Australasian Computer Music Conference 2009, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.
Interactive development environments are making a resurgence. The traditional batch style of programming, edit -> compile -> run, is slowly being reevaluated by the development community at large. Languages such as Perl, Python and Ruby are at the heart of a new programming culture commonly described as extreme, agile or dynamic. Musicians are also beginning to embrace these environments and to investigate the opportunity to use dynamic programming tools in live performance. This paper provides an introduction to Impromptu, a new interactive development environment for musicians and sound artists.
