Techniques And Paradigms for Expressive Synthesis, Transformation, 
and Rendering of Environmental Audio

what is it? : TAPESTREA (or taps) is a unified framework for interactively 
analyzing, transforming and synthesizing complex sounds. Given one or more 
recordings, it provides well-defined means to: 
-- identify points of interest in the sound and extract them into reusable 
-- transform sound components independently of the background and/or other 
-- continually resynthesize the background texture in a perceptually 
convincing manner
-- controllably place event templates over backgrounds, using a novel 
graphical user interface and/or scripts written in the ChucK audio 
programming language
-- leverage similarity based retrieval to locate other interesting sound 
   Taps provides a new way to completely transform a sound scene, dynamically 
generate soundscapes of unlimited length, and compose and design sound by 
combining elements from different recordings. Tailored for sound designers, 
audio researchers, composers, and anyone interested in experimenting with 
sound. go forth and design cool sounds
