The postmodernist technique of cut-ups, that is, creating new art from the pieces of old material, has insinuated itself throughout contemporary culture. Everything is connected; everything is a remix. Taking these principles as its premise, this thesis explores the design and implementation of an expressive, computer-aided, batch audio creation environment, and then further extends those principles to hypothesise a cloud-based, distributed environment for supporting long-range collaboration. Traditional multimedia editing and creation tools are dominated by a direct manipulation interface, and generally depend greatly upon user expertise to find and splice samples of interest. When distributed multimedia manipulation systems are studied, discussion is typically dominated by the challenges faced by systems and network to deliver multimedia data with high throughput and reliability.
