  • Poster Statement

    A simple tool for creating non-linear generative soundscapes. The need for a generative audio library and tool started at a workshop in Media Lab in 1998 and was immediately implemented in a CD-ROM production following with a few interactive sound installations. The basic concept with the generator is to create non-repetitive and natural soundscapes with a set of rules that are as simple as possible to be able to also combine other forms of media and/or interactive logics. The need for a non-repetitive and generative soundscape is crucial to successfully create an ambience, interactive or not.
