Abstract:
In a series of chamber and orchestral compositions I employ approaches to composition in which motivic material is developed in a multi-linear fashion, according to processes of branching and divergence of parameters which are analogous to branching structures in nature. The resultant musical structures coexist within works that may contain multiple branches of motivic development, simultaneously or discretely, rather than following a single temporal line of development.
