Mutable Instruments Elements – Incidences/Resonances Patch

Mutable Instruments Elements – First Look – Incidences/Resonances Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

First look at the Mutable Instruments “Elements” Modal Synthesis Oscillator. This patch was inspired by Bernard Parmegiani Incidences / Résonances piece on | De Natura Sonorum | INA-GRM | 1978.
To imitate nature and acoustic instruments, modal synthesis breaks down the creation of sounds into two steps:
1. Synthesizing a noisy and/or percussive excitation signal, which represents the raw energy transferred to the instrument by the musician when (s)he strikes, bows or blows it.
2. Processing this excitation by a resonator modeling the vibrating structure itself – be it a string, tube or plate. Properties such as its size, tuning, shape and material can be simulated by adjusting the parameters of the resonator.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
