Stochastic Composition and Stochastic Timbre: GENDY3 by Iannis Xenakis

1993a

Perspectives of New Music, Vol. 31, No 1. Princeton: Princeton University Press: 236-257.

GENDY3 is an electroacoustic work by Iannis Xenakis whose music’s structure and sound synthesis are based on stochastic algorithms. This work is composed with a program in BASIC called GENDY (DYnamic GENeration). The author investigates the process of computation of this work at each of its levels from sound production to global architecture.
