Segmod is a non-standard sound synthesis that embraces the discrete nature of digital sound. All sounds created with Segmod result from the concatenation of simple periodic waveforms, such as sine, triangle, and square waves. The sixteen contributing composers have employed a vast array of different compositional, aesthetic, and technological strategies, ranging from inaudible sounds, to neural networks, chaotic functions, careful micro-montages, and analysis-resynthesis techniques. While the results differ widely in sound, all lead back to the idea that synthesis can be seen as a form of composition.
“The Spectre of Fibonaccism” is an algorithmic juxtaposition of the frequencies present in the harmonic series of low E and a Fibonacci series. The results of the algorithm created in Segmod are then combined semi-intuitively, allowing for the whimsical addition of noise, cuts, panning changes and tempo changes.
