Abstract

This folio presents eight works, composed between 2007 and 2013. The works represent the outcomes of my research which has focussed on the development of compositional approaches that bring together techniques and materials from different areas of musical practice, including electroacoustic music and electronic dance music. All of the pieces use algorithmic compositional techniques to some degree. A visual component is important in four of the pieces. The Bridge is a film soundtrack, 8 Switches, Algorithms for Electronics Fake Woodwind and Strings and Bastard Structures 2 are audio-visual works. In two of the pieces, Some Trees and Untitled (Two Pieces for Surround), 5.1 surround sound is used as a compositional element. The commentary serves to give background information, placing the work in context with other work in the field and to explain the compositional approaches that have been taken.
