Cellular Synthesis is an author's technique of musical composition based on a specially designed cellular automaton. The aim of the project is to enable the creation of complex and rich sound structures, controlling a large number of parameters and using the opportunities available only through computer programming - all these conditions are fulfilled while maintaining a very simple and intuitive user interface, susceptible to modifications in real time and using various types of equipment as controllers. In other words, Cellular Automaton is a concept (and application) use of finite and small (and thus enabling easy to learn and use) set of variables and rules to obtain complex musical structures. The project is inspired by the research and publications by Stephen Wolfram.
