highly enjoyable soundscapes, i appreciated the listen a lot!

but could you go into more detail about the process? what do you define as a gesture, are you talking about when you say "virtual sounding objects" - are these 8 different ways of using physical modelling in sc?

greetings-
dormir

Hi dormir,
Mentioned gestures are based around function of
time which makes "virtual objects" sound and to which they react in
differing manner. Without this connection they just keep silent.
By "virtual sounding objects" I don't mean any new definition, it's just something that could be there but it's not.
Nevertheless we can judge it by some of it's qualities (the sound "it produces").
Technically speaking there's not much recursive delay based synthesis in their SynthDefs ( it'smostly modulating (fm, am, ringmod, waveshaping) and granular. But imitation of mechanical processes takes place of course and is driven by the connection between gesture function and synth parameters.
Delay lines based synthesis is used for ambience in these works
