Miguel Negrão is a sound artist born in 1981 in Lisbon, Portugal. Under the alias ZLB he has been active with Drone and Ambient music projects. He has presented pieces for the Wave Field System of the Game of Life foundation, Acousmonium of the GRM and in other concerts in Portugal, Spain and Netherlands. With a Bachelors in Applied Mathematics, he has recently finished a Masters at the Sonology Institute in the Den Haag Conservatory on the topic of Strategies in diffuse spatialization.
is a collaboration piece between Bjarni Gunnarsson and Miguel Negrão. It concerns the real-time interaction and relationships between gradually evolving sine wave drones and dense, dynamic microsounds. The idea is a journey in an indeterminate direction: a global movement carried by an intense current of enfolding sound-masses that get disturbed and affected by streams of high-density subatomic events. Fallacies is a multichannel creation to be performed live on the WFS system.
The challenges and possibilities of real-time Wave Field Synthesis
Description of an implementation of real-time spatialization using Wave Field Synthesis in the SuperCollider audio synthesis programming language. The basic theory of WFS is introduced, followed by the details of a new implementation of general SuperCollider real-time usage for the Wave Field Synthesis system of the Game of Life Foundation (WFS-GOL). An application of the system using spatialized sine wave generators is described.
