Audio: The influence of composition and sound design


Music composition and sound design are fields of study that are constantly being influenced and innovated by technology. Where once the composer was limited by the physical abilities of players and their instruments, they are now free to unleash their imaginations and render that as an audible expression. These new creative tools give access to sound on such a low level, that one can compose with the most basic properties of that sound. Computational Arts sets out to explore the creation of new musical languages through a combination of tonal and spectral grammars. Taking these musical languages and using them to express improvisation and composition. Most research efforts will be spent on electroacoustic composition and development of musical grammars through applied computational geometry.
