How does a traffic roundabout, a detour and a traffic jam relate to sound synthesis? Why is this like gluing together a few rubber bands? In this seminar I hope to describe ideas of topology and how they can be translated into ideas to create structures for sound synthesis. By emphasizing the notion of periodicity and coincidence the topology of street layout can be turned into a sounding structure. We will illustrate how some of these ideas relate to sound generated by physical structures and how it is potentially different.
