Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This research examines non-traditional music performance and composition
practices utilising experimental electronic and acoustic performance strategies for
scoring films. It looks at innovation within screen sound by examining how
technological practices, both innovative and more established, are facilitating
and shaping the creative processes of screen composition and sound design. At the
forefront of this research is taking into account new forms of electronic and
musician interface to the improvisation process when composing in real time,
which includes controllers that manipulate sound in real time, musical gesture
and notation for live performance, and new compositional structure as pertains
to dramatic flow when working to picture.
