dc.description.abstract The creative project was twofold: Firstly, a large high speed DEC-10 interactive computer, located at Ball State University, was programmed, using FORTRAN language. The program is to be used by music students in real-time, on-line interactive classroom situations via a special teletype terminal located in the classroom. Secondly, a D17B mini-computer, located in the Electronic Music Systems Studio at Ball State University, was programmed using quasi-octal machine language for on-line, real-time interaction in conjunction with the ARP-2500 music synthesizer located in the same studio. This capability provides an adjunct to other compositional tools already available to the composer in this studio.The principal thrust of the software programs in both of these contexts was the on-line and automatic manipulation, handling, editing and control of pitch sets during interactive conversation with a computer via teletype or synthesizer keyboard.
