Abstract

My portfolio of compositions comprises 13 original composition scores and accompanying CD and DVD media. This work spans a six year period from 2006- 2012 and is written for a variety of instruments from solo piano and vocal works through to large scale orchestral and choral. Nearly all the works have been commissioned and performed professionally and recordings of the performances are included. There are several arcs to the development of my composition that are displayed in this portfolio, and the commentary splits these into four main categories: mechanics of performance, exploring vocal technique, sonority as a structural mechanism and using ‘found material’ for tonal structure. My folio also covers areas of research involving the use of vocal multiphonics (such as traditional Mongolian throat-singing), and conveying poetic meaning through reference and musical discourse. My goal in composing these works is to create a flexible and meaningful compositional technique and, above all, to display a breadth of material and diversity of musical techniques that are equally balanced between experimentation and self-expression.
