The Interactive Dynamic Stochastic Synthesizer

Brown, Andrew & Jenkins, Greg (2004) The Interactive Dynamic Stochastic Synthesizer. In Norris, Michael (Ed.) Australasian Computer Music Conference, 1-3 July 2004, Wellington, New Zealand.


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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
