Homework #2: Generative Soundscape

Image:OmegaNebula.jpg


Compose a short piece using

  • at least 2 items from the category 1,

and

  • both approaches in the category 2.

Note that the techniques in category 2 should be used to control patterns and structures of music, not simply pitch or timbre (as if it were an instrument).

category 1:

  • voice
  • illusion
  • pitch
  • timbre

category 2:

  • interactive control (integrating devices such as game controller, wii remote, microphone, keyboard, mouse, etc.)
  • generative synthesis (integrating algorithms to generate/modify the structures of sounds)

Due date: 2013.2.21 11:59:59pm (or thereabout), Monday.

Not all of these are directly relevant, but may serve as basic building blocks...

Deliverables

As usual, turn in all files by putting them in your Library/Web/220b/hw3/ directory and email the link to Takako, Rob, and Spencer.

  • 1) create a hw3/ directory, and put all the stuff below in there:
  • 2) index.html should go into the hw3/ directory
  • 3) all related source/sound files (.wav/.ck) NOTE: You must turn in a .wav file showcasing a performance on your system.
  • 4) a short README text (readme.txt) file that:
    • specifies instructions on running your programs
    • describes your process/adventure, and perhaps the ideas (technical/aesthetic) behind the composition
    • gives credit, if needed, for the sounds you are using
    • describe any difficulties you encountered in the process
  • 5) email Takako, Rob, and Spencer

Have fun with it!
