Concatenative Sound Synthesis (CSS) has undergone software tool development for composition in non-realtime use in the MATLAB (Sturm, 2006) and Max/MSP (Schwarz, 2003) programming environments. Live Concatenative Sound Synthesis remains rare as of 2015 and has one initial tool within Max/MSP (Schwarz, 2006). This dissertation is centered around the original creation of an extensive Live CSS plug-in for the SuperCollider audio environment, its exploration and use in a significant musical composition. “PNW”, contained herein, is this work, a composition of live poetry reading, tenor saxophone accompaniment, and use of “Concatenate”, a new Live CSS plug-in for the SuperCollider environment.
