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...
