This thesis is concerned with the application and development of my compositional practice, as demonstrated through my portfolio of compositions. Identifying and understanding the techniques I utilise whilst composing formed an important part of this undertaking and my development as a composer. The pieces in this portfolio demonstrate the development of my compositional practice and personal style, characterised by the importance of timbral and textural elements and the use of gesture. I intended to utilise different instrumentations to create a varied portfolio of pieces demonstrating a wide range of different timbres, sounds, and colours. In the commentary I will engage with what I have learned from my experiences over the course of this year.
