Abstract

My portfolio of compositions includes eight original scores, plus two revised scores and accompanying recordings. The recordings are presented on one CD and one DVD. Written over three years, the compositions are for a variety of instruments from solo piano through to orchestra. Most of the works have been performed, either by professional musicians or by students. My research is focused on the role of breath within the dynamic relationship between events, reverberations and rests. My primary goal was to compose decaying musical shapes from the concrete object to silence. In this commentary, I also discuss other aspects of my compositional practice, such as individual ritardando techniques. I have analysed the harmonic progression, pitch materials and structure for some of my pieces. In chapter II, I explain how my music is related to the ideas of the musical gestures of appearance and disappearance. In chapter III, I clarify the method of organising broken looping as repetition. Both chapters also include an explanation of my cultural, musical background and influences.
