This article provides an overview of dictionary-based methods (DBMs), and reviews recent work in the application of such methods to working with audio and music signals. As Fourier analysis is to additive synthesis, DBMs can be seen as the analytical counterpart to a generalized granular synthesis, where a sound is built by combining heterogeneous atoms(More)
An interactive, audiovisual composition based on the universal wave equation and additive synthesis is presented. Visu-alization, sonification, and motion-capture interfaces are discussed in relation to their use within the piece. The technique of " density plot synthesis " is introduced to describe the technique of controlling sound-source amplitude levels(More)
