Deforming the Oscillator: Iterative Phases Over Parametrizable Closed Paths

Iterative phase formulations allow for the generalization of many oscillatory sound synthesis methods from circles to general parametrizable loops, with or without explicit geometric contexts. This paper describes this approach, leading to the ability to perform modulation, feedback and chaotic oscillations over deformed circles that can include ill-behaved geometries, while allowing modulations or feedback to be deformed as well.
