No Such Array: Developing a material and practice for electronic music performance
Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Department of Composition and Conducting.

Abstract [en]

I have been designing and building a set of battery powered hybrid synthesizer speaker objects that can be deployed in any location without the need for any additional infrastructure. Composing for and performing with the resulting system has become the focus of my artistic practice. This project brings together my interests in composition, design, synthesis, politics and performance to investigate new methods for performing and experiencing electronic music. The work takes the idea of the impossibility of an objective listener as its starting position and generates environments that give agency to the listener to create their own sonic experience of a given space. It also engages in questions of power and how this practice might work throughits entanglement in various power relations as a minor practice by introducing and opening up the conditions of possibility for other actions.

This thesis traces the aesthetic roots of my undertaking in the work of others, including Okkyung Lee, Rie Nakajima, Tetsuya Umeda, Marginal Consort, Tony Conrad and Luc Ferrari. It also details my own experience creating work for the GRM's Acous- monium, the series of decisions made in creating my own alternative speaker orchestra, and the practical process of situated learning2 that I have undertaken to develop a performance practice via three stagings: at Röda Sten Konsthall in Göteborg, within a pedestrian underpass running below the E4 national highway, and at Järvafältet Nature Reserve, north of Stockholm.
