Abstract

This paper introduces the AIE-Studio (Audio Interfaces for Exploration), a modular dataflow patching library implemented with Pure Data. The AIE-Studio introduces new tools for procedural sound design through generative sonic and musical structures. Particular focus is on aesthetic experience. The designed modules allow versatile dataflow mapping through matrix routing system while also enabling the sound designer to influence generative processes of music creation. In particular, The AIE-Studio was used to create generative sonic and musical material in an embodied game-like application. In this paper we present key questions driving the research, theoretical background, research approach and the main development activities .
