SMC Conference 2008 (2008)




Acute, is a music score composed by the author of this paper, for Percussion Quartet and Fixed Media (tape) using ‘Searched Objects’ as instruments. This paper examines how this piece recontextualises existing research in Typology and Morphology of Sound Objects to produce a unique music mixed-media score, for the exploration of the sonic possibilities when confronting the ‘ideal’ (sonic object to be found) with ‘the reconstruction of itself’ through time (when performers attempt to recreate the given sounds) using processes of Spectro-gestural mimesis.
