Abstract

The folio of compositions submitted here consists of the six large-scale works that I have completed between the years 1994 and 2003. Over the course of this nine-year period I hope that the folio demonstrates a consistent and constantly evolving thread of techniques and processes in spite of the substantial developments in my overall compositional style, intentions and interests.

The works make use of a wide and unconventional range of source materials and instrumental combinations indicative of the numerous and diverse musical styles and genres with which I have been involved.

The two areas of study that were to have the most profound influence on my compositional methodology were those of minimalism and serialism.

Compositions:
by air, sea and land
journey
xpianos
drum no bass
journey’s end
