Cornelius Pöpel: On openness, formalization and resulting questions in the design of computer-based musical instruments


This talk gives a brief introduction to my research in the design of computer-based musical instruments (CMI). I will focus on questions related to what affordances a CMI built for traditional instrumentalists (e.g. string players) should provide and what constraints come with the process of formalization necessary when developing CMIs. Based on my conclusions I will present an alternating approach to sound synthesis which I call Audio Signal-Driven Sound Synthesis and I will talk about how basic aspects of the signal-driven approach can be mapped onto other systems/fields in music and what questions may evolve when doing this.
