   SOUND SYNTHESIS TECHNIQUES & TOOLS

"How do you synthesize a music instrument sound using computers? Why
might the response of two alto saxophones be so different? How does
the wind-instrument performer influence the sound of an instrument
using vocal-tract manipulations? Is there a future in computer-aided
design of music instruments?"

This talk will attempt to answer those questions and more. I will
introduce concepts of music instrument sound synthesis based on
acoustic modeling principles. I will also discuss developments with
the Synthesis ToolKit (STK) by Gary Scavone (McGill University) and
Perry Cook (Princeton University), an open-source computer
programming toolbox for music synthesis and audio processing. A
variety of audio demonstrations will be provided.
