Binaural Recording




  • To exploit chaotic systems and other mathematical equations to achieve a deterministic, random or periodic form of algorithmic control for computer instruments.
  • Play with parameters on two instruments – physically model and sampler.
  • Master in 4-channel surround, and render to binaural (for headphones).


  • Deriving from the pop track ‘Dreams on Fire’ (A.R. Rahman) which features Sitar, this piece intertwined live sampling of the track with a physical model synth Sitar.
  • Note duration and pitch of the physical model were discretized, to lend a more tonal/popular style.
  • Binaural rendering was done in ChucK.
