Abstract

Timbral Hauntings (2014) is an interactive installation system created by Michael Musick that considers the impact of echoes from the past on the perception of the present and their capacity to induce future sonic expectancy. This paper discusses details in producing Timbral Hauntings including motivation, core concepts, and technical particulars. It specifically discusses the compositional processes using music information retrieval (MIR) and feature extraction techniques to classify phrases and pull information from the 'past' to re-shape the 'present'. Concepts of temporal dynamics will be discussed by examining the compositional process during analysis/feature extraction, classification and re-structuring, and synthesis phases.
