Miranda, E. R. Parallel Computing for Musicians. Proceedings of the XVIII Annual Congress of the Brazilian Computer Science Society, SBCM, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1998 UFMG SBC. Invited lecture

Sony CSL authors: Eduardo Miranda

Abstract

This lecture introduces the fundamentals of parallel computing and discusses its benefits for musicians. It begins by introducing classic parallel architectures and parallel programming strategies. Next, it discusses the benefits of parallel computing for a specific area of computer music research: sound synthesis. The lecture then concludes with a brief discussion on the future of the musician's desktop computer. It is suggested that new paradigms for computer music will emerge from parallel computing technology, but it is up to our community to find the right approaches to them.

Keywords: computer music, parallel computing
