Emergence des dimensions temporelles dans la musique électroacoustique
La musique électroacoustique, pour celui qui l’analyse ou qui la compose, présente, de par la difficulté de la réduire – à une notation, à une structure, à un style, … – un objet d’étude polymorphe. Au travers d’exemples, ...
The role of spectral-envelope characteristics in perceptual blending of wind-instrument sounds
Certain combinations of musical instruments lead to perceptually more blended timbres than others. Orchestration commonly seeks these combinations and can benefit from generalized acoustical descriptions of perceptually ...
The use of microphone level balance in blending the timbre of horn and bassoon players
(Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 2015-10)
A common musical aim of orchestration is to achieve a blended timbre for certain instrument combinations. Its success has been shown to also depend on the timbral coordination between musicians during performance, which ...
Predicting blend between orchestral timbres using generalized spectral-envelope descriptions
Composers rely on implicit knowledge of instrument timbres to achieve certain effects in orchestration. In the context of perceptual blending between orchestral timbres, holistic acoustical descriptions of instrument-specific ...
A spectral-envelope synthesis model to study perceptual blend between wind instruments
Wind instrument sounds can be shown to be characterized by pitch-invariant spectral maxima or formants. An acoustical signal-analysis approach is pursued to obtain spectral-envelope descriptions that reveal these pitch- ...
Measuring the interaction between bassoon and horn players in achieving timbre blend
Our study investigates the interactive relationship between bassoon and horn players in achieving timbre blend during musical performance. The interaction is studied in a behavioral experiment, measuring the timbral ...
Architecture and algorithms in the composition of analogies.
(Ryerson University, 2006-06)
This paper presents an interdisciplinary approach to the composition of a piece for orchestra entitled Analogies. Composition involved the creation of musical analogies to structural characteristics found in architecture. ...
The Voyage was a major outdoor spectacle performance, which formed part of the official launch of the nationwide London 2012 Festival celebrating the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Voyage was an epic tale telling the ...
