The Electronic Music Working Group demonstrates software synthesis instruments designed and created using the music programming language ChucK. The EMWG explores the various advantages of the language such as parallel programming, “live coding”, and a unified timing mechanism across various events. Using computers, keyboards, and MIDI controllers, instruments have been produced following traditional models such as additive synthesis and signal processing using Fourier analysis (FFT), as well as unique methods for adaptable music-tuning and an Android interface for use of the software over a network. The presentation will conclude with a performance.
