Using additive sound synthesis to analyze simplicial complexes
MetadataShow full item record
We present a new technique for traversing simplicia1 complexes and producing sounds from the output of this traversal. The traversal algorithm was invented in order to extract temporal information from static geometric structures; this information is used as input to a sound synthesis algorithm. A systematic traversal of complexes and associating data to parameters of sound synthesis has many possible applications: the analysis of objects of dimension 4 or higher, exploration of large data sets and music composition. In this paper we limit ourselves to bdimensional objects and present the experimental results from the first phase of our work.
