Abstract: The use of the studio as a real-time composition process using acoustic, digital, and augmented instruments has been the basis of my artistic practice. This process promotes the interaction of the different elements that make up the studio in order to privilege composition through timbre and sound as musical material. This use of the studio as a musical instrument has raised constraints, as a result of my need to use new materials in musical composition. These materials have their own ways of operating and are quite different from each other, impairing the fluidity of the artistic process. My research aims to answer this problem, through the construction and mapping of a digital instrument that uses gestures to produce sound. The Physical Computing Instrument (PCI) will include elements dispersed in the studio, new musical materials, and even the interaction and control of current ones. The implementation of the PCI will be based on the last two decades of the development of new digital instruments in interactive systems covering namely human-computer interaction (HCI), programming and mapping languages, biosensors, inertial measurement units (IMU), on-skin electronics, augmented reality and energy harvesting. This presentation aims to describe the current developments in the research and to discuss the next steps in the Physical Computing Instrument implementation.
