Orchestration, Perception, and Musical Time: A Composer’s View


Friday 2 December 2005, by Rob Weale

The construction of a comprehensive theory of orchestration adequate to deal with computer music has so far been hampered two main factors: the enormous variety in the sounds available, and the exponential rate at which audio and computer technology has been developing.

The theory makes possible some useful generalisations that the author believes will not become obsolete with the next generation of synthesisers.
