Max Mathews is the father of computer music who worked at bell labs in the early 50s. The radio drum is a realtime performance instrument developed by him in the last 20 years. Composer, performer, educator Richard Boulanger is the author of the definitive book on Csound. they both are playing the radio drum in […]

In this work the link between video and music is based on the idea of contrast. There are 1 Tema and 4 Variations and the tension and the rigidity of the sounds and structures, different in each of the five parts, produce a different perception of the sensuousness, softness and fluidity of the images: falling […]

Composed entirely using Csound and an audio file, the work combines the resínthesis of psvoc, with the technique of granulation of Cmask. Pelleting involves the definition of grains that in general, it is understood, are time small (up to about 50 milliseconds), but i use rather the concept of grain and extend the […]
Graph layouts use spring layout algorithms. Springs and other physical systems are very interesting systems and have fundamentally musical properties such as decay and oscillation.
I took the graph drawer found here and stole the state of the graph every couple of frames: http://js1k.com/demo/618
The instrument I used in the background is an additive string […]
This is such a bizarre, unique little project that I had to post it. The sound in the video is really quiet, so turn your speakers up.
Each point on the clothe is responsible for one sine wave instrument. It’s position and movement cause the pitch of that particular instrument to change. The counter at the […]
This video starts with two sine waves an octave apart (the sideways figure 8). Harmonics are added above the octave and phases resulting in symmetric figures are shown. First the patterns are shown using sine waves (curved edges) and then the same patterns are shown with triangle waves (straight edges). After 6 individual harmonics are […]
The core of the work is a looped 4-channels electronic music track, entirely produced using a single impulse (mathematically a Dirac delta, also called “click” or “glitch”) as the only source for the whole piece. The click has been processed exclusively with reverberation and filters in Csound. The Csound opcode used to generate the click […]
The Melting Sun is an ambient composition in the Bohlen-Pierce scale, whose tonality, timber, volume, and timing are determined algorithmically from a video of the sunset.
The sounds heard can be separated into two groups: the drones, and the melodies. Both groups feature three different Csound instruments that each correspond to various types of Red, Green, […]
