Audio Spray Gun 0.8.0 beta download

Audio Spray Gun, my SuperCollider application for fixed-media composition is now available for download from sundaydance.

ASG simultaneously generates and spatialises large groups of sound-events from a single sound source by randomly creating points constrained by a locus or ‘particle zone’ within a multi-dimensional parameter space. When this locus is transformed over time, the program produces a sequence of events, which can then be rendered to multichannel audio.

Version 0.8.0 includes three-dimensional spatialisation and the option to store sound-groups as metadata for later modification. I’ll be giving a presentation on how it works at ICMC 2015 in Texas at the end of September.
