Creating and Exploring the Huge Space Called Sound: Interactive Evolution as a Composition Tool
Paper i proceeding, 2001
This paper introduces a program that applies the principles of interactive evolution, i.e., the process of
repeatedly selecting preferred individuals from a population of genetically bred sound objects, to different
synthesis and pattern generation algorithms. This allows for aural real-time exploration of complex sound
spaces, and introduces the task of constructing sound engines and instruments customized for this kind of
creation and exploration. Several such sound engines are presented together with sound examples and a
discussion of compositional applications.
