Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

This paper describes a project to create a software instrument using a biological model of neuron behavior for audio synthesis. The translation of the model to a usable audio synthesis process is described, and a piece for laptop orchestra created using the instrument is discussed.
