For several years I have been developing a live performance practice that examines the musical potential of recorded sounds through the use of live electronics, control interfaces and multichannel loudspeaker diffusion. I will be working with Annie under the SOUNDkitchen banner to create a new live performance using recordings made during this R&D. I’ll also be researching the application of ambisonic recordings in this context and the potential of ambisonics as a live spatialisation methodology through the development of custom built software in MAX/MSP and other tools.
My musical compositions are always created from recorded sound; field recordings, studio recordings and their subsequent combinations and manipulations. I will be researching methodologies to integrate ambisonic and other multichannel recordings into my practice. This will cover what is practical and possible in my home studio with the recording technology I own. I’ll be looking at the technical challenges and aesthetic choices that present themselves and developing strategies to address these in the creation of new work.
