Parallel Computing for Musicians

  title={Parallel Computing for Musicians},
  author={Eduardo Reck Miranda},
This lecture introduces the fundamentals of parallel computing and discusses its benefits for musicians. It begins by introducing classic parallel architectures and parallel programming strategies. Next, it discusses the benefits of parallel computing for a specific area of computer music research: sound synthesis. The lecture then concludes with a brief discussion on the future of the musician’s desktop computer. It is suggested that new paradigms for computer music will emerge from parallel…

Making Music with Algorithms: A Case-Study System
CAMUS 3D, a composition system of the authors' own design that likens the process of music composition to that of pattern propagation, is introduced and two classes of algorithms are used to generate musical data.


Computer Sound Synthesis for the Electronic Musician
From the Publisher: * Free CD-ROM with samples * Ideal for music technology students and professional musicians Computer Sound Synthesis for the Electronic Musician is intended to introduce
The Architecture of the IRCAM Musical Workstation
A general overview of the IMW system is provided with a special focus on the hardware architecture, based around a general-purpose multiprocessor providing sufficient number-crunching power for real-time musical signal processing and event processing.
Betel Orionis: a real time, multiprocessing sound synthesis system
A new electronic system has been developed for real-time sound synthesis based on the dedicated DSP Orion, intended for live performance in concert halls and it is interfaced with personal computer and MIDI controls that allows the composer or performer to interact with it.
Machine Tongues XIV: CSP -- Communicating Sequential Processes
The possibility of performing parallel computations has long held out the promise of breaking the speed limits imposed by sequential monoprocessors. However, even though some significant inroads have
