This thesis deals with questions about how to deal with recombinant works concocted from large media collections; how these different kinds of music can be represented; about handing over control to performers or an audience and how these pieces as a whole can be conceived of and presented to the public. It puts forward the database as a method for dealing with libraries of material, examines different representations for dealing with collections of sounds and music, appraises strategies for interactivity such as hypernarratives and suggests metaphor as a method for understanding all of this. These themes are dealt with in both the portfolio of works presented on the disk and this written dissertation. Out of this comes contributions to the bodies of work exploring the appropriation of everyday objects in art, the fields of algorithmic and generative music, generative video synthesis, online mass participation artworks, interactive pieces and local network instruments.
