Iannis xenakis - les percussions de strasbourg - pléïades - Granular synthesis - Wikipedia


Greek composer Iannis Xenakis is known as the inventor of the granular synthesis technique. [1] Xenakis was the first to explicate a compositional theory for grains of sound. He began by adopting the following lemma: "All sound, even continuous musical variation, is conceived as an assemblage of a large number of elementary sounds adequately disposed in time. In the attack, body, and decline of a complex sound, thousands of pure sounds appear in a more or less short interval of time." Xenakis created granular sounds using analog tone generators and tape splicing. These appear in the composition Analogique A-B for string orchestra and tape (1959). [2]
