Stria is a piece fully generated by the computer, with the creation of all the parameters needed to play each sound, starting by a certain number of input sessions, elaborated by algorithms. This paper contains the partial synthesis of the analysis of this piece; the analysis was conducted starting from the original algorithms, the listening of the piece and a few literature documentation. Direct communication with J. Chowning was important too. 

An Analysis of the Compositional Techniques in John Chowning's Stria

An analytic study of the process used by John Chowning for the composition of Stria, intended to complete the description of the compositional process given in a previous work, largely restated by Bossis in a subsequent paper.

The Assembling of Stria by John Chowning: A Philological Investigation

This research moves from the hypothesis that Stria exists in several versions and follows the historical genesis of the assembling of the sections, from the very first synthesis of the piece to two different and coexisting four-channel and stereophonic versions.

Stria:Lines to Its Reconstruction

There is a story that goes with the next four articles about Stria and the forthcoming Computer Music Journal DVD of a piece of music given a program with some missing code and missing data, two different sound recordings, and my memory of what I had done more than 30 years ago then their carefully analyzing my not-veryclean code written in an old language.

The Identity of the Work: agents and processes of electroacoustic music

The question centres on a paradigm which is created from the analysis and returns to it, as an essential link between hermeneutic knowledge and the knowledge of the internal logic of an electroacoustic work.

Beauty in Motion Through the Lens of Doppler’s Formula

Many founding fathers of science have underscored the importance of beauty in mathematical representations of natural phenomena and their connection with the beauty of the objects they represent.

Computer Music: Synthesis, Composition, and Performance

This new edition of Computer Music builds on the foundation of the original book to address the revolution in computing technology that has put computer music within the reach of all, including the availability of powerful personal computers at low cost, the development of user-friendly software, and the establishment of the MIDI interface for digital control of music hardware.

THE SIMULATION OF MOVING SOUND SOURCES

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.
