This research seeks to explicate the transformative power of signal processing in the production of space-time through a transdisciplinary approach across architecture, sound studies, and sonic practice. It combines theory and
practice and consists of two parts, respectively. Part one comprises a transversal genealogy of signal processing, questioning how associated technologies are appropriated and employed by various social, cultural, and artistic movements in the production of subjectivity and provides a conceptual framework for the design-driven part. Part two focuses on design and composition in reciprocal connection with theory. Through a series of projects it aims to develop a
deterritorialised architectural machine, an operational diagram, which is meant to enable processes of reterritorialisation by modifying existing sites sonically. This paper highlights two conceptual components of this machine and discusses the theoretical framework and previous projects from which they derive.
