The objective of my portfolio is to develop a new compositional process that involves analysing recorded sounds, interpreting and translating analyses into musical metaphors, and generating formal structures based on changes in timbre. The portfolio explores several models of compositional processes that were created in the course of my research. It analyses the strengths and weaknesses of these models, and it offers insight into the ways that the compositional process may be further developed.
