Our case presents an artist using a car as an instrument. Contemporary technology enables artists to take everyday objects and create original compositions. Through the use of mobile smartphones, laptops and audio recording technologies the recording studio becomes a much more broadly defined space. We explore implications of audio capture and composition in an efficient manner, through taking simple everyday sounds and processing them to explore the range of creative possibilities. In this space, the environment becomes a canvas for discovery, composition and creative exploration, with limitless potential. We describe some of the working processes of musicians involved in this practice, the challenges, roles and emergent metadata therein.
