Abstract

Opening a discussion about digital voices in contemporary spaces and popular music in two parts: 1) An essay that traces discourses of disembodiment and the rise in prominence of digital voices in electronic music, enumerates the ways in which they are enacting physical change via examples like the virtual star Hatsune Miku, and situates their arrival within an emerging trend to materialize digital forms and blue the line between physical and digital creation. 2) An audio project for which I employed pop, experimental, and electronic music techniques in order to create a science fiction-inspired narrative featuring as the central instrument digital voices.
