Computer-Aided Composition, Sound Synthesis/Processing in OpenMusic: the Re Orso project

Jean Bresson will present and discuss some applications of computer-aided composition and the OpenMusic environment in Re Orso, an opera for voice, instruments and electronics by composer Marco Stroppa. Several aspects of computer-aided composition are involved in this opera ; Jean Bresson will focus on the generation of structured forms in the time and pitch domains for the control of sound synthesis and electronic instruments, and the generation of synthetic voice-oriented sounds using the Chant sound synthesizer.
