The Interactive Dynamic Stochastic Synthesizer
Throughout musical history new sounds and instruments have opened new opportunities for music making. In this paper we outline a new interactive digital instrument that implements the dynamic stochastic synthesis algorithm devised by Iannis Xenakis. We discuss the history and operation of this synthesis process, previous implementations of it, and how our implementation is the first we know of designed specifically for live performance. Finally, the behaviour tendencies of the synthesis system and how these impact upon interactivity are discussed.
