Abstract:
This research details my growth as a composer as I try to reconcile my identity, background and family life with my research into composition. The key concept running through my overall research and composition is the idea of 'pace', which relates to an individual's interpretation of time regarding a musical piece. This concept was further expanded to explore the communication between the composer, performer and the audience, and how each of their unique 'pace' can affect each other and build the outcome of the music. This research also explored the role of the audience which ultimately led to active audience interaction within a concert environment. The idea of audience interaction was attempted for real time music making for concerts. This was realised by converting audience participation to the form of electronic sound. The concepts developed through exploring pace, communication and audience interaction, were re-integrated into subsequent compositions. Furthermore, a practical method was developed to help re-establish and re-engage the inspiration behind a composition, after time away from the process. By composing the experience of time, I have been able to mature as a composer as I have learnt to reconcile my identity, background and family life with my academic research compositions.
