Project

Open Cylinder Waveguide Prototype

This audio feedback system is a prototype designed to digitally manage or 'shape' resultant audio feedback tones as they resonate through various media. In this case, pressure waves are produced in the air by a loudspeaker, guided through a configuration of pipes, and sensed by a microphone on the other end. By completing the partially open waveguide loop, energy is allowed to flow seamlessly between the external sound environment and the digital environment.

Sonic Writing Research

Dr. Thor Magnusson, from the University of Sussex, is in residency at CNMAT for a week this Spring. This is part of his Sonic Writing Research project which is a two-year research program that explores work and practices using new technologies for musical expression. Through tracing the historical conditions of material and symbolic design in in three interconnected strands of inscription - instruments, notation, and phonography - the project studies how established techniques are translated into new methods of musical composition and performance in digital musical media.
