Digital Expression and Representation of Rhythm (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Renney, N., & Gaster, B. R. (2019, September). Digital Expression and Representation of Rhythm. Paper presented at Audio Mostly

Music provides a means to explore time by sequencing musical events in a seemingly endless and expressive way. This potential often far exceeds the ability of digital systems to enable composers and performers to explore musical time, perhaps due to...

Fun with Interfaces (SVG Interfaces for Musical Expression) (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Gaster, B., Nathan, R., & Carinna, P. (2019, August). Fun with Interfaces (SVG Interfaces for Musical Expression). Paper presented at 7th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modeling, and Design

In this paper we address the design and implementation of custom controller interfaces, bridging the issue of user mapping between action and sound in interactive music systems. A simple framework utilizing functional specifications for musical inter... Read More about Fun with Interfaces (SVG Interfaces for Musical Expression).

Return to temperament (In digital systems) (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Renney, N., Gaster, B., & Mitchell, T. (2018, September). Return to temperament (In digital systems). Paper presented at Audio Mostly

Considering the generation of musical tunings, it is reasonable to expect that the many constructs contained in Functional programming languages may provide useful tools for exploring both conventional and new tunings. In this paper we present a numb... Read More about Return to temperament (In digital systems).

Outside the block syndicate: Translating Faust's algebra of blocks to the arrows framework (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Gaster, B. R., Renney, N., & Mitchell, T. (2018, July). Outside the block syndicate: Translating Faust's algebra of blocks to the arrows framework. Paper presented at Proceedings of the 1st International Faust Conference (IFC-18)

Folklore has it that Faust’s algebra of blocks can be represented in Hughes’ algebra of Arrows. In this paper we formalise this understanding, showing that blocks can indeed be encoded with Causal Commutative Arrows. Whilst an interesting finding in...
