Abstract

This selection of ten artworks represents the conclusion of my aesthetic and conceptual interests related to composition for the last three years. This research has been focused on the sound composition of immaterial vivid objects, as abstract articulated xeno entities which emerges from the listening.

After introducing key concepts and influences from the repertoire and literature, this thesis explores an essential concept called ‘thingness’, which constitutes the main core in the full discourse of my artistic research. My definition of objects starts from this principle, which is unfolded in four main categories: thingness in relation with sound, the listener, time, and space. Thingness has been applied in two types of works: sound installations and mediabased pieces, and likewise extended to collaborations, challenging and strengthening my views within pieces of a wider aesthetic range.
