The Stochastic Synthesis of Iannis Xenakis.

Xenakis calls this synthesis "DSS": Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis.

- The sound wave is synthesized segment after segment.
- A segment links two points (2 breakpoints).
- Each point is defined by its position in time, horizontally (h), andits amplitude, vertically (v).
- Points are synthesized by group.
- There are N points (N breakpoints) in a group.
- A group of points constitutes a waveform, a period (T).
- Each point (h, v) is calculated from the same point in the groupbefore it using probability distribution (random walk).

Iannis Xenakis completes GENDY3 (for tape, created solely with dynamic stochastic synthesis).

The laws of the calculus of probabilities entered compositions through musical necessity. But other paths also led to the same stochastic crossroads — first of all natural events such as the collision of hail and rain with hard surfaces, or the song of cicadas in a summer field (Iannis Xenakis, as quoted in Chadabe 1997: 279).

Iannis Xenakis completes GENDYN program for dynamic stochastic synthesis.

The most famous works of Xenakis, who won the Polar Music Prize (considered the unofficial Nobel Prize for music) in 1999, are his compositions for orchestra Metastasis, Pithoprakta and Terretektorh (where the 88 musicians are spread within the audience) and the electroacoustic compositions Persepolis, Concret PH, Bohor and La Légende dEer where Xenakis integrated his stochastic synthesis sounds for the first time.

Distributed stochastic composition and synthesis in SuperCollider
Julian Rohrhuber and Sergio Luque
"New ways to bring back the noise into the telephone line. Instead of separating signal and noise, we will try to devise new and beautiful uncertainties, reconstruct respected old noise sources and play with the intractable. This workshop will be an experimental laboratory for finding and exchanging stochastic algorithms that run on each other’s computers in the local network."

Its objective is the exploration of meth-ods used in “non-standard synthesis”, especially in Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis (Xenakis), in another domain.
