Enhancing Sound Design with Conceptual Blending of Sound Descriptors



This paper introduces a new method for sound synthesis
using concept description of sounds. Sound descriptions are blended to
form a new description, which inherits properties from the former entities
as well as having an emergent structure of its own. Such blends are then
synthesised to become a potentially new sound.
This work applies the system Divago, which is based on a general purpose
computational model of Conceptual Blending.
