Tom Mudd is a musician and programmer interested in relationships between software, composition and improvisation. His recent work revolves around physical models: digital synthesis processes based on numerical simulations of acoustic objects and instruments. His upcoming release on Fancyyyyy uses massed brass synthesis: digital models of physically improbable brass instruments being played by algorithms. Previous work released on the Entr’acte label explored similar territory with his own synthesis processes. He currently lectures in sound and algorithmic music at Edinburgh College of Art.
