Abstract

The use of Wave Terrain Synthesis as a control mechanism is a governing system that allows the performer to create a complex and coordinated change across an existing complex parametric system. This research has focused largely on the application of Wave Terrain Synthesis for the control of Timbral Spatialisation. Various mappings of the Wave Terrain mechanism are discussed, to highlight some various ways in which frequency-space morphology may be approached with such a model. With the means of smoothly interpolating between various terrain and trajectory states allow the performer to control the evolving nature of sound shapes and spatial texture generated by the model.
