Example text

With the computer, human physiology can be removed from the process of musical creation. However, given the physiological substrates of music, it is quite certain that musical performance will never become obsolete. Instead, humans will continue to find new expressive ways to map physical gestures into sonic results. Although the computer can certainly disintermediate the human performer, it is equally possible to disintermediate only the instrument, allowing the performer to transcend the limitations of conventional instruments.

Early versions of Max provided only control data, in the form of MIDI, but real-time audio signal processing and synthesis were added to a specialpurpose version around 1990 and to the commercial version in 1997, as well as to an open source variant, Pure Data (Puckette 1997). Puckette (2002) stressed that the most important influence on Max was in fact not graphical patching but the real-time scheduling of parallel control tasks found in Mathews’s RTSKED program. ) Much of the appeal of Max is indeed its real-time nature; it is a tool for performers as well as composers.

Sometimes, a general-purpose programming language for which music routines had been written was used. The software engineer who develops sound synthesis tools can be considered an abstraction of the traditional instrument builder. A composer who assumes this role disintermediates that engineer. Many computer music composers have reveled in the freedom to build their own virtual instruments and even to build languages for building instruments. However, there is a continuum of involvement available to the composer, ranging from writing languages, to writing programs, to creating algorithms, to simply tweaking parameters of existing algorithms (analogous to twiddling knobs on an analog synthesizer).
