EXPERIMENTAL ELECTROACOUSTIC FEEDBACK SYSTEMS, THE PERFORMER AND THEIR AUDIENCE
A phenomenological description of an experimental approach to improvised electroacoustic performance utilizing acoustic space, a Logic Pro environment bussing matrix, Max/MSP and inherently unstable acoustic, electronic audio and midi feedback loops. Thematic dissolution is the musical theme following elements of Cagean indeterminacy in the composition and performance of musically organized sound. Embodied, performative engagement within acoustic space, both conceptual and practical, passive and active, is discussed in relation to experimental composition, the technological setup, the sounds themselves and the audience.
