ASRA 2021 Conference

Dr Anthony Lyons and Dr Heather Gaunt present on the Living Instruments project at the 2021 Australian Sound Recordings Association Conference.

The Grainger Museum is transforming historically rare and unique instruments into interactive and playable virtual instruments. The Living Instruments project – a collaboration with the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Music and Melbourne eResearch Group, School of Computing & Information Systems – involves mapping real instruments (by sampling their sound) to new tactile digital interfaces that anyone can use. The project has resulted in significant student learning experiences and outcomes with Interactive Composition students from the University creating over 20 new audio works from the recording and digital instrument making process.
