Abstract

Using values-led participatory design (Iversen, Halskov, & Leong,
2013) as a foundation, this thesis argues the importance of values in
the design decisions that steer the conception and development of
new electroacoustic musical instruments. A model is introduced that
defines seven distinct Personas, as different perspectives on the
creation process of ‘performing instrument designers’. Second Order
Virtuosity (Hildebrand, Lopes, Hoelzl, & Campo, 2016) and the
persona model are cross-examined, substantiated by the virtuoso
practice of peer ‘performing instrument designers’ (PIDs). The
Electrumpet, a hyper instrument, is used as a case study for the
application of the model in relation to its improved design and the
evaluation of its progress as a musical instrument in general. The
thesis concludes with a description of the technical implementation
of the improved Electrumpet system and the compositional and
improvisational strategies implemented.
