A Virtual Piano Concerto - Coupling of the Mathews/Boie Radio Drum and the Yamaha Disklavier Grand Piano in the "The Seven Wonders of the Ancience World"

  title={A Virtual Piano Concerto - Coupling of the Mathews/Boie Radio Drum and the Yamaha Disklavier Grand Piano in the "The Seven Wonders of the Ancience World"},
  author={David A. Jaffe and W. Andrew Schloss},
A special class of feedback delay networks using circulant matrices is proposed. These structures can be efficiently implemented and allow to control the time and frequency behavior. Several applications of circulant feedback delay networks in audio signal processing are presented. 

Applications of the phase vocoder in the control of real‐time electronic musical instruments

By using the sound of a traditional instrument to control a synthesiser, it may be possible to take advantage of the former's more subtle control possibilities and overcome inaccuracies of the phase vocoder.

Intimate control for physical modeling synthesis.

A new, low-cost sensor design capable of generating a 2D force signal, a new implementation of the 2D digital waveguide mesh, and two experimental computer music instruments that combine these components using different metaphors are presented.

Orchestrating the Chimera: Musical Hybrids, Technology and the Development of a “Maximalist” Musical Style

This article describes the “maximalist” approach the author takes in his musical composition. This approach embraces heterogeneity and allows for complex systems of juxtapositions and collisions, in

The ways in which gestural data are analyzed as if they were an audio signal are described, and applying this technique to the radio drum, a novel three-dimensional controller that one of the authors uses regularly for concert performances.

Using Contemporary Technology in Live Performance: The Dilemma of the Performer

The use of computers in live performance has resulted in a situation in which cause-and-effect has effectively disappeared, and how this affects contemporary performance and the relationship between the performer and the audience is shown.

Designing Musical Interfaces with Composition in Mind

This paper addresses three different strategies to map real-time synthesis of sounds and controller events, each of which uses external events such as natural phenomena to influence a synthesis model.

Design of virtual three-dimensional instruments for sound control

An environment for designing virtual instruments with 3D geometry has been prototyped and applied to real-time sound control and design and should prove useful as a (musical) instrument prototyping tool and as a tool for researching the optimal adaptation of machines to humans.



Traveling Wave Implementation of a Lossless Mode-coupling Filter and the Wave Digital Hammer

Monochloro-substituted saturated compounds may be prepared by condensing a saturated compound such as cycloalkyl hydrocarbon with a chloromonoolefin with a chlorine atom attached to one of the doubly-bonded carbon atoms in the presence of a free radical-generating catalyst and a promoter comprising a hydrogen chloride compound.

Vibration and Sound

DR. P. M. MORSE who has made a number of contributions to theoretical atomic physics, shows in the present book that the new mathematical techniques which have been developed for the working out of


The method controls the distribution and amplitude of direct and reverberant signals between the loudspeakers to provide the angular and distance information and introduces a Doppler shift to enhance velocity information.

Input impedance of brass musical instruments—Comparison between experiment and numerical models

We present a sequence of measured and calculated input impedance curves for tubes of increasing complexity, culminating in curves for a trombone and for a tuba. Measurements were made by the indirect

Ensemble Timing in Computer Music

The time map method allows the composer to specify a distortion of a time trajectory such that complex tempo variations combined with precise coincidence control can be obtained and is also a useful way to think about performance analysis.

Design of recursive group-delay filters by autoregressive modeling

A new method of design of recursive group-delay filters is presented in this paper. The method uses autoregressive modeling to derive parameters of the filter. The design is based on the following

Physical Modeling with the 2-D Digital Waveguide Mesh

The 2-D digital waveguide mesh is constructed out of bidirectional delay units and scattering junctions, and it is shown that it coincides with the standard finite difference approximation scheme for the2-D wave equation, and the dispersion error is derived.

A new approach to one‐dimensional scattering

An alternative approach to the one‐dimensional scattering problem is presented in which the potential is replaced by a sequence of flat barriers or wells. The resulting problem is solved exactly and

Evidence indicates that judgments of half‐loudness of speech (as well as half-l Loudness of isolated speech sounds, noises, and tones) are equivalent to acoustic perspective, both being based upon the ratio of direct to reverberant sound as well as the intensity of these components.

The computer simulation of piano mechanisms

Catalytic, amorphous glass in highly divided form, such as fibers, is disclosed in which the glass is substantially non-crystalline and contains from about 10% to about 70% by weight of an
