Luque Ancona, Sergio (2012)
Ph.D. thesis, University of Birmingham.
A portfolio of compositions for acoustic instruments, electronic resources alone, and for acoustic instruments and live electronics. The accompanying commentary describes the aesthetic and the context of these works, their approach to form, and traces the development of the techniques used in their composition. In particular, it discusses a variety of approaches to computer-aided algorithmic composition and stochastic processes for the generation of musical elements (e.g. chord sequences, rhythmic patterns, sound structures). Included in the commentary is a description of research into stochastic synthesis, and of the development of a personal implementation of Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis and Stochastic Concatenation of Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis in SuperCollider.
