This composition portfolio is an exploration of different collaborative compositional processes, and an examination of their outcomes, which include both the actual music produced, and an account of my personal creative development. It is a journey from collaboration to solo composition. It is also an examination of the close connections between karawitan (the traditional Javanese gamelan repertoire) and new music for gamelan, and how the latter can widen the boundaries of karawitan. The portfolio seeks to develop my own style and musical language through collaborations, in different ways. Gamelan music and gamelan instruments are natural resources in view of the collaborative processes that are intrinsic to karawitan, which I have translated into my compositional processes.
