Scott Alan Wyatt


Integration of Multi-dimensional Sonic Projection and Sound Synthesis with Acoustic Instrumental Performances; Research and Composition

Professor Wyatt will focus more attention on continued research, design, and development of a compositional and live performance methodology for use with an eight-channel sound projection system, and endeavor to compose a significant work for instrumental ensemble and electronics that displays effective integration of multi-dimensional sonic projection and sound synthesis with acoustic instrumental performance. Much of his research has involved timbre design, timbral integration of electronically-generated sound with the live acoustical musical instruments, digital timescaling of sound, and recently, the use of a multi-channel sound projection system as an effective and creative multi-dimensional performance medium.
