Abstract:

  • The Gendynish algorithm is software that runs on Arduino-class microprocessors to produces sounds similar to Iannis Xenakis’ dynamic stochastic synthesis. This article outlines the origins of stochastic synthesis and describes the Gendynish algorithm and associated electronic instrument development and performance outcomes. This algorithm takes a somewhat unconventional approach to Arduino audio. In doing so it demonstrates how once cutting-edge computer music practices are now much more accessible and that the spirit of creative expression through audio technologies remains alive and well.
