Sound Composition with Pulsars

Document Thumbnail

Pulsar synthesis (PS) is a method of electronic music synthesis based on the generation of trains of sonic particles. It can produce either rhythms or tones as it crisscrosses perceptual time spans. The basic method generates sounds similar to vintage electronic music sonorities, with several important enhancements. The advanced method combines multiple pulsar trains and convolution with sampled sounds. Together with Alberto de Campo, the author has designed a program for pulsar synthesis called PulsarGenerator. Applications of pulsar synthesis in compositions by the author are noted.
