Some friends of mine in Glasgow just saw this performance at the Tramway, it looks pretty ace!
I was quite happy with my performance, give it a listen/view:
Really nicely, and visually, explained introduction to the Fast Fourier Transform - great stuff!
I’ve just read ‘Microsound’ by Curtis Roads. I was well aware of the microsound movement, but hadn’t realized the depth of the theory behind granular synthesis, with it’s history going back to the 1940s, and early practise from Xenakis (using tapes) and this lad, Curtis Roads, programming his own granular synth on a
PDP-11/20 in 1974 - what a bad-ass! Check this site for some good background and papers.
I found these videos of Curtis Roads, via the site linked above.
dang, this is awesome::
