Productive interaction between these modes resulted from the research: since the computer was a common element, strategies emerged that gave more coherence to the totality of Toop’s practice. Being engaged in the functionality of the computer as a real time sonic instrument led to experiments with different groupings of musicians, leading to the formation of two working trios.
Research into the nature of digital recording was the stimulus that led to the method of constructing hyper-real ensembles of players within the virtual space of the computer. This research was developed as practice and theory, informing papers on the process at conferences such as Sonic Focus (Brown University, Providence, 2006), Music and Postmodern Cultural Theory (University of Melbourne, 2006), Isolation (School of Art, Hobart, 2006) and the Sound Body symposium Toop convened at London College of Communication in 2006, along with performances at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and a Sound Body event curated for Krems Festival, Austria.
The CD assembles in the digital domain the playing of 11 musicians, along with the voices of artist John Latham and writer Kenji Siratori.
