Porter Robinson is an EDM producer specializing in electrohouse, dubstep, synthpop, progressive house, and experimental genres. In his album Worlds, Porter used heavy sampling of reproduced vocaloids as well as original soundfonts and sound capturing methods. As an album project, Worlds influenced me significantly in my approach and philosophy towards performance art and the role of sound and music in experiential design.
Computationally, Porter developed many of his ambient noises through the use of simulated improvisation via program learning. Likewise, Porter utilized music databases to sample from and incorporate into each song of Worlds.
