A great resource for learning about granular synthesis.
- J.a.g.s by limulo.net is a pd patch I could test with my RasPi
- Logic X has an inbuilt granular synthesizer (good tutorial)
- Clouds by Rajmil Fischman is also very complex (and free)
Also found Automatonism by Johan Eriksson a modular audio environment which works inside pd. Wonder if it can run on RasPi?
Judging from Erikssons example it appears that nowadays electronic artist have make their own soft-/ hardware to market/facilitate/fund their creative careers. Mark Verbos in another excellent example (see his interview for details). Artists build their income by creating and sharing tools/instruments they use to make their art. This means that tools are currently more significant then artworks.
