This portfolio includes pieces for ensemble, solo instrument, voice and choir as well as electroacoustic music, which are products of research into various aspects and degrees of freedom and control within a composition. Through collaboration with performers from different backgrounds, the pieces explore elements of improvisation by means of a variety of methods: graphic and conventional notation, written and verbal instructions, choice of materials within a given framework, or freedom of structure with given materials. Music from different cultural backgrounds is discussed in this commentary, outlining how these influences may hint at different ways of approaching freedom and control in music.
