LOCAL DISSONANCE MINIMIZATION IN REALTIME

Julián Villegas, Michael Cohen

Abstract

This article discusses the challenges of applying the tonotopic consonance theory to minimize the dissonance of concurrent sounds in real-time. It reviews previous solutions, proposes an alternative model, and presents a prototype programmed in Pd that aims to surmount the difficulties of prior solutions.
