---
 

In performance, W.A.Davison practices a form of "electroacoustic improvisation" which is more in line with the origins and early uses of that term than with contemporary interpretations. Davison rarely uses laptops or other mobile computing devices in his performances, focusing instead on amplified objects, homemade instruments, cheap or broken electronic devices, modified tape recorders and turntables, voice, tabletop percussion, extended technique and preparations as applied to guitar and other instruments, and fairly minimal electronic processing (effects pedals). In his compositions, Davison uses linux-based desktop computers running free and open-source software to record, manipulate, arrange, mix, and master a wide variety of sound sources.​
