A folio is presented consisting of seven computer-generated compositions. Many of the works create and explore relationships between sound and video, reflecting a concern with the multi-modal nature of perception. In most of these compositions, material is structured by simple algorithmic processes. Tese processes are used to explore relationships between perception and cognition: how the changing form of a work over time reveals the nature of a process to us, and how our understanding of that process affects our expectation and anticipation of future form. One work in the folio takes the approach of transforming existing sound and image. Tis process is used in an attempt to disrupt 'musical meaning' and other symbolic content encoded in the source material. These compositions were completed between 2009 and 2012 and are presented chronologically, demonstrating the progression of my ideas throughout this period. An accompanying text discusses ideas relevant to the folio in general and gives a critical commentary on each work. Compositions included: Four, Colour Projections, Control Processes, Summer Mix, Colour Projections / set 2, Bastard Structures 2, Tiling Sessions.
