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.
