Instruments that are more than instruments (and other stories)

Partly auto-ethnography, partly explanatory research, and partly an exercise in nontypical academic writing, this treatise focuses on music/multimedia instruments (and making paradigms thereof) that

Pop-up for Collaborative Music-making

This paper presents a micro-residency in a pop-up shop and collaborative making amongst a group of researchers and practitioners. The making extends to sound(-making) objects, instruments, workshop,

This chapter explores different perspectives on the role of musical tools in musical interactions, with a particular focus on entanglements of agency. These perspectives can run the full gamut from

New Directions in Music and Human-Computer Interaction

In this collection, the interdisciplinary field of music interaction is considered from multiple viewpoints: designers, interaction researchers, performers, composers, audiences, teachers and learners, dancers and gamers.

Towards a Practitioner Model of Mobile Music

This practice-based research investigates the mobile paradigm in the context of electronic music, sound and performance; it considers the idea of mobile as a lens through which a new model of

Slippery bows and slow circuits

This article is based on a keynote lecture given at the 51st International Musicological Colloquium, Masaryk University, Brno, that was part lecture, part performance. The lecture was presented in

All the Noises: Hijacking Listening Machines for Performative Research

Whether the functionally-oriented approaches inherited from engineering domains that much machine listening research manifests is fully suited to the exploratory, divergent, boundary-stretching, uncertainty-seeking, playful and irreverent orientations of many artists is debated.

Cords and Chords: Exploring the Role of E-Textiles in Computational Audio

This article looks at e-textiles within computational audio from three perspectives: the historical developments of the field; the core enabling technologies; and the primary application areas.

Ambulation: Exploring Listening Technologies for an Extended Sound Walking Practice

Ambulation is a sound walk that uses field recording techniques and listening technologies to create a walking performance using environmental sound. Ambulation engages with the act of recording as



Ambiguity as a resource for design

It is argued that ambiguity is a resource for design that can be used to encourage close personal engagement with systems and tactics for emphasising ambiguity are described that may help designers and other practitioners understand and craft its use.

Workshopping Participation in Music

This paper presents a process-based approach to considering workshops as a route to participation in collective creative musical practice. We evoke the notion of the Music One Participates In, which

We Have Never Been Modern

What makes us modern? This is a classic question in philosophy as well as in political science. However it is often raised without including science and technology in its definition. The argument of

Meeting the Universe Halfway: Quantum Physics and the Entanglement of Matter and Meaning

Meeting the Universe Halfway is an ambitious book with far-reaching implications for numerous fields in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. In this volume, Karen Barad, theoretical

Not Hyper, Not Meta, Not Cyber but Infra-Instruments

This paper proposes infra-instruments as devices of restricted interactive potential, with little sensor enhancement, which engender simple musics with scarce opportunity for conventional virtuosity in hybrid, multi-device performance settings.

Beyond DIY in Electronic Music

How the workshop and the event have become central to practitioners working in the field of DIY is discussed, and how the idea of delegated performance, where instruments are played by ‘non-experts’, serves to establish a naïve approach and authenticity in performance.

Getting the Hands Dirty

ABSTRACT “Getting the hands dirty” refers to an approach in which process and performance are inseparably bound. The “performance” begins on the workbench and is extended onto the “stage” through


Some of the data generation and analysis from cells derived from mouse anterior lateral motor area (ALM) and lateral geniculate complex (LGd) single cell transcriptomics data was supported by award number U01MH105982 and Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development.
