Starting with a short overview on some very basic principles of sound perception this paper acts on the assumption that recording, storage, editing and reproduction of audio signals have compensated at least some of these principles and therefore significantly changed human listening habits. Reflecting on these changes, the idea of sound transformation and re-mixing in real-time is suggested as part of the performance and composition process. Some techniques are explored and a number of implementations are introduced.
