Composing for an Orchestra of Sonic Objects: The Shake-ousmonium Project

This article reports and discusses the “Shake- ousmonium” project; a collective effort to design and build an orchestra of sonic objects, in parallel to the composition and performance of five original pieces in a concert. A significant diversity of sound sources were created using structure-borne sound drivers to transform a range of materials into loudspeakers, as well as augmented instruments, DIY electromechanical instruments and prepared speakers. The article presents the system design and the pieces composed for it, followed by a discussion on the extension of the compositional gesture towards the material environment – the sonic objects. Audiotactility in concert setting is considered, in connection with the results of an audience feedback poll conducted after the concert.
