Sound Generation with Aperiodic Ordered Systems

Aperiodic 1D systems introduced in physics in the field of quasicrystals are used in this work, in order to generate selfsimilar aperiodic time structures. The Fourier analysis of series of impulses distributed in time in a non periodic but ordered way, shows that for some cases the spectrum has a discrete part that can be used for sound synthesis.
