Gendy.js: A Web Audio Module for Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis

Andrew Bernstein, Benjamin Taylor
This paper outlines Gendy.js, a JavaScript Web Audio implementation of the GENDYN program for dynamic stochastic synthesis originally authored by composer Iannis Xenakis. The historical development of dynamic stochastic synthesis is reviewed followed by an overview of it's technical components and their implementation in JavaScript. Finally, the authors examine the possibilities and issues regarding future development of nonstandard synthesis algorithms using the Web Audio API.
