Abstract: 

An interactive electroacoustic music composition and solo mixed-media performance realized as an alternatively-staged one-night concert event. This project examines the tradition of staging live electronic music and the role of a solo computer music composer-performer. It is a four-movement interactive work with an appended generative music system performed solo within an alternative stage layout. It is derived from an interdisciplinary practice of combining electroacoustic music and electronic dance music performance practices. This thesis project also includes custom built performance software and an interactive audio visual performance apparatus. It is an exploration of cybernetics in electroacoustic mixed-media performances that lends itself to the development of a personal compositional style.
