Automatonism: Making Music With Self-Playing Machines

My research aims to discover new techniques for music-making with modular synths and I am using composition, performance and instrument design to do so. Led by my artistic practice, I am trying to find out whether the act of patching a modular synth is an art-form. The main contribution to knowledge is twofold: firstly the development of a new software platform for the creation of music not previously possible with modular synths, and secondly giving birth to a new performance model for live-patching: putting on display the human creation of evolving sonic ecosystems being performed by a self-playing machine.
