J o h n C a g e :

"I think the term "worth listening to" depends on who`s listening.
I think it would be right to say that no matter what, if it is sound, one could listen to it. I haven't yet heard sounds that I didn't enjoy, except when they became too musical.
I have trouble, I think, when music attempts to control me.
I have trouble, for instance, with the Hallelujah Chorus. But if the sound is unintentional, then I have no problem."

Project: The violoncello sound is processed in the spectral domain in Kyma.
This abstraction is modulated by the violoncello's amplitude and frequency.

Try scaling a VCS window though. What a mess.

And re-sizing/scaling STILL doesn't work as it should be (in the 21st century) in Mac OS. It's still done pre-OS X style...
Utterly unbelievable.

The main +++ = that Kyma is open for designers. Like Max/msp you can create your own(!) designs.

Other Kyma users seem to scale and adjust perfectly. I suggest check your Kyma X Revealed.

One of the Kyma users I like in design of his VCS windows is Cristian Vogel.

Designing his own prototypes

And nice VCS windows:

There is the Q and A on Symbolic Sound. Just open your Kyma software and go to the HELP - Q & A menu. This will open your internet browser. You can ask all your questions there. All users will try to help you.


Cheers!

So much to explore!

Over the long weekend, I playing with a one of my favorite things: varying grains into resonators or modal filters.

This one is pretty basic: Pitch tracking 1dGrainCloud > stereo Harmonic Resonators replicated 4 times with different intervals and ADSR for each set. Waveforms and envelope are scanned by a slow moving lfo.

Pattern is a simple repeating loop. Mixed to cassette tape. I picked up a Marantz 4 track a while ago but this is the first time I've used it.

Are there many Kyma users doing this sort of thing? I'm still just a Kyma voyeur, but am curious how deep these things go? Over $400 for his spectral suite... are there a lot of packages out there like this? I didn't realize that once you have a Kyma system there are further libraries to potentially consider.

Many thanks for the continued posts!

There is a good number of people developing Kyma prototypes that can be shared but only a few selling. I have a number of Cristian’s (Never Engine Labs) packs and they are fantastic. You absolutely don’t need to buy them. There is a lifetime of Kyma exploration in all the free modules/prototypes. Personally I hugely respect what NEL are doing and therefore am happy to pay for their research and hard work coding things. They make things that just work to let me concentrate on having fun...I have limited time to play! I always try to understand how they were made though to further my knowledge of Kyma.

Here is an exploration of the Spectral Suite;

KISS 2020

13-16 August 2020 • Twelfth Annual Kyma International Sound Symposium

Image

The 2020 International Year of Sound is a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound and related sciences and technologies. It consists of coordinated activities on regional, national and international levels to stimulate the understanding throughout the world of the important role that sound plays in all aspects of our society.

Sound is an essential part of communication between humans – in the form of speech, as a sound of warning, and also in music and creative sounds. However there is a concern about too much sound, which then becomes noise and needs to be controlled to ensure acceptable and safe living and working environments.

See UNESCO Resolution 39 C/49 25 September 2017: The Importance of Sound in Today’s World

Looking forward to KISS2020. It looks ambitious and quite interesting what they are encouraging this year for topics.

I am trying to do at least one Kyma based recording per week. Here is a sound based on spectrum files created from Fairlight samples which are used then to set the frequency and amplitude bands of a modal filter that is pinged by a single pulse and then feed into a tape delay.

Creating voices with use of formants.

A classic and fundamental example with use of the TwoFormantVoiceElement

Image

http://soundcloud.com/roland-kuit/2formantelement

An excitation signal similar to a glottal pulse (with a randomly chosen rate of vibrato) is used as the input to a pair of parallel second-order filter sections that simulate two of the formants of the vocal cavity for how to measure ring size.

Frequency
The frequency can be specified in units of pitch or frequency. The following are all ways to specify the A above middle C:
440 hz (in hertz or cycles per second)
4 a (as the 4th octave A)
69 nn (as a MIDI notenumber)
4 c + 9 nn (as 9 half steps above middle C)
1.0 / 0.00227273 s (inverse of a period at 44.1 kHz sample rate)
The following are examples of how to control the frequency using MIDI, the virtual control surface, or a third-party program:
!Pitch (key number plus pitch bend)
!KeyNumber nn (MIDI notenumber)
4 c + (!Frequency * 9 nn) (continuous controller from 4 c to 4 a)

Formant1
For an [IY] sound, try a center frequency of 238 hz. This will be the center frequency of the first formant. This is not the fundamental frequency of the TwoFormantVoiceElement but the center of an emphasized region of the spectrum.

Bandwidth1
For an [IY] sound, try a a bandwidth of 70 hz. This is the bandwidth of the lower formant region. The narrower the bandwidth, the more "pitched" the formant will sound--also the more likely the the filter is to overflow.

Scale1
For an [IY] sound, scale this formant to 0.3. This controls the amplitude of the first formant. For the full amplitude use +1.0 or -1.0; any factor whose absolute value is less than 1 will attenuate the output.

Formant2
For an [IY] sound, try a center frequency of 1741 hz. This will be the center frequency of the second formant. This is not the fundamental frequency of the TwoFormantVoiceElement but the center of an emphasized region of the spectrum.
Thanks by this information ;)

Regards
