Abstract When studying the history and evolution of the GRM, one of its outstanding features has been its continuous energy dedicated to developing machines, systems and, in recent years, software that would better serve composers' views and intentions. Unique discoveries were made that have become the fundamental concepts of sound manipulation and have influenced researchers and developers in the conception of new, but always somehow faithful to the original, tools for composition. Many steps… Expand

The Impossible Made Real: A Typology of Loops and an Exploration of the Impact of Immediacy and Hypermediacy in Popular Music.
All popular music has a degree of repetition at a micro and/or macro level, a paradigm that has also been shown to be true in both the European classical tradition and music of most other cultures.Expand
TESI DI LAUREA A TRANSIENT-PRESERVING AUDIO TIME-STRETCHING ALGORITHM AND A REAL-TIME REALIZATION FOR A COMMERCIAL MUSIC PRODUCT
Time scaling an audio signal without altering the signal pitch and the perceived sound quality is a classical research topic, that has been studied from the ’50s [48]. Techniques to perform this kindExpand
Designing expressive interaction techniques for novices inspired by expert activities : the case of musical practice. (La conception de techniques d'interaction expressives adaptées aux novices et inspirées par des activités expertes : le cas de la pratique musicale)
TLDR
The study of usability is proposed as an alternative to the focus on immediacy that characterizes current commercial interactive systems and methods to benefit from the richness of expert activities and from the implicit knowledge of non-experts to design interactive systems that are at the same time expressive and usable by novice users are proposed. Expand
RETHINKING THE TRANSMISSION MEDIUM IN LIVE COMPUTER MUSIC PERFORMANCE
Transmissions require the encoding, communication and decoding of meaningful information across some medium or other. Historically, both the artist and the scientist have tended to treat physicalExpand
An Interactive System for Electro-Acoustic Music Analysis
TLDR
An original classification scheme is devised using relevance feedback and active-learning segment selection in an interactive loop using a database of polyphonic pieces to achieve more accurate classification. Expand
Once Upon Time: A Superficial History of Early Tape
Abstract The early history of tape can be and has been told in a number of ways: as a byproduct of fascism; as a serendipitous outcome of signals intelligence and the spoils of the Second World War;Expand
