Pi Shaker

In late 2019 I hosted at Griffith University a visit from visiting researcher Dr. Vesa Norilo from the Sibelius Academy in Finland. During his visit here Vesa worked with with me on new tools and techniques for electronic instruments. As part of developing this work we produced the Pi-Shaker prototype …

GenDynish – Xenakis on the Arduino

Furthering my previous interests in Stochastic Synthesis I implemented an emulation of Iannis Xenakis’ Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis on an Arduino micro controller, the resulting algorithm I titled GenDynish. The Gendynish algorithm is software that runs on Arduino-class microprocessors to produces sounds similar to Iannis Xenakis’ dynamic stochastic synthesis works from …
