Elseif

Six computer music compositions using dynamic stochastic synthesis —a technique developed by the composer Iannis Xenakis, which uses
probability fluctuations to generate the successive sample values in
digital waveforms. A stochastic process is one whose behaviour is non– deterministic in that the next state is partially but not fully determined
by the previous state. Non-deterministic laws can be observed in nature,
for example: the probability that a subatomic particle will disintegrate
within a time interval at a given radioactive rate.

Reviews

I must say that the combination of serious composed electronic[s] with
a sound palette such as used here is certainly one I like very much, as it
brings out more thought to noise, which is always a good thing.

Elseif’s six short tracks… are more exfoliating than soothing, flipping
between noisily bristling electronic frequencies and blustery washes of
oscillating tones. …Elseif sounds carefully programmed even in its most
frentic moments, and offers several blasts abrasive enough to unclog
the dirtiest pore.
