Compositions for Voice and Technology

Hewitt, Donna G. (2006) Compositions for Voice and Technology. University of Western Sydney, Penrith.



The PhD consists of a portfolio of electro-acoustic compositions and is accompanied by a scholarly dissertation. The portfolio of works explores the development of real-time electro-acoustic composition techniques using microphone captured audio. The portfolio focuses particularly of the voice as a sound source and aims to bring together the authors background as a popular vocalist with her 'music concrete' influenced electro-acoustic compositional work. The portfolio culminates in the development of a HCI (Human Computer Interface) called the eMic (extended mic-stand interface controller), which allows the performer to control sound parameters in real-time via common popular music performance gestures.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
