Abstract: The use of the studio as a composition process using acoustic, analog, and digital instruments have been the basis of my artistic practice. This process promotes the interaction of the different elements that make up the studio to favor composition through timbre as musical material. This studio use has suffered constraints due to my need on adding new composition materials. My doctoral project aims to respond to this problem by constructing and mapping a digital instrument that uses gestures to produce sound. The Physical Computing Instrument (PCI) will streamline my composition process, adding new materials to the studio, while maintaining the use of current ones. The PCI will also contribute to the development of my artistic research through the composition of several works within a variety of ensembles and musical genres that may also be useful for the growing community of musicians, composers, and academics who carry out research in this area, and for those not familiar with technology but eager to expand their artistic practice. This research will promote the sustainability of materials used in the construction and the implementation of solutions to make the PCI, a self-sufficient device, regarding its energy consumption.
