Some Experiments in the Gestural Control of Synthesized Sonic Textures
Abstract. In this paper, we introduce some exploratory ideas and applications involving the gestural control of sonic textures. Three examples of how the gestural control of synthesized textures can be implemented are presented: scratching textures, based on the gesturalized exploration of a visual space; dynamic noise filtering, where gestures influence a virtual slowly moving string used to filter a noise; and breathing textures, where the metaphor of breathing is used in the sound as well as in the gestural control. Lastly, we discuss how to find connexions between appropriate gestures and sonic texture processes, with a view to producing coherent and expressive digital musical instruments. 1 Sonic textures and gestural control Sonic textures are characterized by both microscopic and macroscopic features: on the short term scale, they are composed of a series of microstructural components which are subject to some randomness; whereas on the long term scale, some temporal and spe...
