Abstract

This paper presents a music technology portfolio consisting of 5 distinct projects, which are each concerned with the concept of physicality in digital music. The work seeks to address acoustic ecologist R. Murray Schafer’s concept of schizophonia by imbuing digital music systems with signatures from the analog world through the use of emerging technologies of physical computing. Physical control methods were developed and explored for this purpose as well as the use of computer controlled mechanical actuators operating on acoustic objects. The resultant projects vary in form - encompassing aspects of automated musical performance, installation and interactive art as well as design and programming - but in all the link between sound and source is in some way given physical tangibility.
