In this third tutorial, we examine the StepSequencer and how it can be thought of as one big, resource-rich automated MIDI keyboard.
In the past, the Frequency Modulation technique was used widely in radio transmission but had not been applied to sound synthesis. In the early 1970s, John Chowning, a composer and researcher at Stanford University, developed some important new techniques for music
A large part of my work the past decade has involved applications of ecosystemic programming. I was introduced to the concept of musical ecosystems by Agostino Di Scipio’s lectures on his Audible Eco-Systemic Interface (AESI) project at the Centre de
I’ve been interested in data-driven music over the past few years, and have explored this topic in some of my previous work (San Giovanni, Carbonfeed, #Ferguson) and I am currently working on a sound installation using historical data sets of California’s
In this second tutorial, we look at mixing Sounds and controlling them from the Virtual Control Surface.
In this first tutorial, we look at how to trigger and gate Sounds from a MIDI keyboard.
