Article
Full-text available
Amplitude-based sound spatialization without any further signal processing is still today a valid musical choice in certain contexts. This paper emphasizes the importance of the resulting envelope shapes on the single loudspeakers in common listening situations such as concert halls, where most listeners will find themselves in off-centre positions...

Managing control data in live electronic systems can be very complex. Ideally, in a rehearsal situation the performers should be able to focus on the musically relevant problems and make significant changes to the structure of musical events in an immediate way. To obtain this kind of flexibility, a performance system has been developed at Tempo Re...

Six historical electroacoustic compositions from the 1950s to the 1960s are analysed in search of a series of ‘narrative strategies’ whose validity can be extended to the electroacoustic repertoire. In this paper we propose some examples of the narrative elements, showing analogies and differences in their use by different composers and in the...
Article
Our research work is based on an aesthesic-cognitive approach to the description of sound events in contemporary music analysis. It starts with the definition of a phonematic paradigm and goes on with the individuation of analytical-computational strategies. After the formalization of a paradigm of distinctive features, we have made a series of tab...
Article
Pietro Grossi was the first pioneer of computer music in Italy. During his activities from 1961 to the 1980s he devoted much research to algorithmic composition. Grossi’s first experiments in this field are discussed, dealing particularly with three important phases of his work: initiating algorithmic composition at the S 2F M studio in Florence, w...

The study section permits to interact with the...
Article
"Nave di Luce", a synaesthetic and telematic artwork by Marcello Aitiani, combines different languages with specific expressive means such as music, painting, sculpture, performance, telematics and computer music. Taking the recent complexity theories as a starting point, it joins pictorial and sculptural elements to a double musical component that...
