Rowlands, Robert Lewis
DAFx-1998 - Barcelona
This paper discusses a Fine Art approach to the processes of digital audio. The author puts forward some ideas for a re-defining of digital audio software to embrace a wider audience and to promote the manipulation of sound as a sculptural process removed from, yet still related to, the assumed musical tradition. The authors artworks are introduced, and the impact of current research upon these artworks and upon the authors teaching are discussed.
