With the advent of computer technologies, composers have begun to use computers for their compositions. Computer technologies have changed the actions of composers during their compositions. Because they may forgo writing sketches and scores on paper, some studies point out that it is difficult to analyze the compositional process of music created with computers.
The aim of this study is to propose a visual analysis methodology for analyzing compositional processes. The proposed system “Spectrail” allows the users to visually analyze the history of a composition with a pixel-oriented spatial substrate by using data taken from AudioSculpt, which is developed by the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM).
