Inventing memory: Documentary and imagination in acousmatic music.
(Middlesex University Press, 2008)
The potential for sound recording to act as a surrogate for memory is evaluated in terms of its use in the composition of acousmatic music. Adapted from the writing of Walter Benjamin, sound recording of real-life events ...
The core research idea in this work is to address the problem of integrating electroacoustic redesign of instrumental sound spectra within a live performance context. The piece consists of 70 pre-composed sound files ...
Imaginary Workscapes: Creative Practice and Research through Electroacoustic Composition
Compositional activity in electroacoustic music is central to the research culture of that field. Electroacoustic tools for sound manipulation and transformation allow the creation of sound materials that present new ...
Practice, process and aesthetic reflection in Electroacoustic Music.
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-04)
This is an editorial article introducting ideas around the relationship between practice and the emerging theory of electroacoustic music.
The extended environment.
(International Computer Music Association, 1994)
The potential in electroacoustic music to amalgamate sounds of natural real-world sources with the powerful signal processing and synthesis offered by computers makes possible interplay between different levels of sonic ...
(First performed at the New Walk Museum, Leicester, 12 April 2015, by Carla Rees (alto flute), Heather Roche (clarinet/bass clarinet), Xenia Pestova (piano) and John Young (sound projection)., 2015)
Sir Thomas Armstrong, a former principal of the Royal Academy of Music and a veteran of the First World War, once stated that there is a falsity about the reporting of all battle scenes. In the face of the most shatteringly ...
A practice-based approach to using acoustics and technology in musicianship training.
(International Computer Music Association, 2007)
Digital audio tools can be used to facilitate many aspects of traditional note-based music making, but one of the challenges they present is also found in their potential to open up new opportunities for the shaping and ...
Sound in structure: Applying spectromorphological concepts.
(Electroacoustic Music Studies Network, 2005)
This paper departs from critical discussion of the concepts and terminology used by Denis Smalley to outline the ‘spectromorphological’ approach to the listening process. It then seeks to elaborate and apply salient aspects ...
Sound morphology and the articulation of structure in electroacoustic music.
(Cambridge University Press, 2004-04)
In electroacoustic music we have the capacity to manipulate sound in an unprecedented number of dimensions - especially to transform, disassemble and remix both natural and digitally created sound-objects over time. This ...
