Mid-Study Presentation – Daniele Pozzi

A Feedback Meta-Apparatus

The pluriennal development of strip (2017-2022), a piece of software to design, and experiment with, feedback relationships in recursive phase and frequency modulation synthesis is presented. The work is contextualised drawing, among others, from the research of Adam Pultz Melbye1 and Jonathan Impett2. A focus will be on how the intertwinement of material software experimentation and aesthetic experience favoured a conceptual shift from a representational to a performative idiom, and a first attempt at understanding this shift in light of Rheinberger's notion of experimentation3 is discussed.

Daniele Pozzi

Composition / Computer Music and Sound Art

Daniele Pozzi is a sound artist and electronic musician living in Graz, Austria. Among his works are live performances and improvisations, sound installations and electroacoustic music, often involving the design of original computer programs and interfaces addressing compositional or performative issues. His recent practice investigates the relation of process and form in feedback practice, and the becoming of sound and algorithmic processes.
