Abstract: 200-400 words
This thesis paper describes my process of exploring sound and music creation based on interplay of circuit-bending and sonification of abstract data. By using these methods, I developed musical instruments that consist of two parts: an analogue interface for creating sound from alternating current and digital interface that uses the analogue sounds as raw material for data sonification.
