Abstract:
This portfolio of compositions was produced over a period of several years.spent as a part-time distance learning student of Bangor University. During this course of study, I resided for various periods in Spain, Italy and Thailand, and my obligatory visits to Bangor were made from these countries. Prior to the above period, I had also worked in Kenya, Kuwait and South Korea and visited India, China, Myanmar and Lao. All these international exposures had undoubtedly influenced these referential experiences which inform my work, whether overtly or obliquely The purpose of these studies was to provide the opportunity of exploring my compositional processes and developing my musical language, whilst at the same time enhancing my understanding of the various facets which inform my music. One outcome of the above is the identification of a compositional process that is frequently employed in my works that warranted classification and further exploration. 1
