Abstract

This text is a commentary on my preoccupations over the course of my doctoral research from 2013 to 2017. It accompanies a portfolio of works realized and submitted as part of this doctoral thesis, which looks more specifically at feedback as an iterative process between myself as instrument-builder, composer and performer. This approach, which puts sound center stage as the primary material, emphasizes the organic and bidirectional internal influences among these three creative poles.

This thesis is devoted to the main subject of my doctoral research: the notion of creative feedback among instrument-builder, composer and performer. It is in five parts:

1. A definition of my principal influences and aesthetic biases;

2. A portrait outlining the connections of influence among the instrument-builder, composer and performer;

3. A discussion of relationships outside the creative process itself, that is to say the influence of other artists (composers, musicians, other instruments) in my approach to research creation;

4. A demonstration of how I use the influences of other composers, other musicians and even other artists whose works speak to and inspire me;

and 5. A presentation of three concrete examples from the portfolio realized during my doctoral research

The body of work submitted includes: three new instruments, two sound installations,four compositions and three comprovisations.
