My work during the last few years, parallel to teaching and concert management, has been focused on instrumental composition, composition with electronic media, sound design and performance. Spontaneous and continuous experiments in all these fields have enabled me to explore and develop many compositional techniques and processes, searching in this way for a unique personal language based on my own experience of listening. The following portfolio is a detailed examination of my compositions during this period, clarifying the issues in instrumental and electroacoustic music composition which relate to performance, spatialization and live electronic processing; my intention here is to develop, systematize and automate some of the currently vital processes in this area in a flexible, and adaptable way, thereby contributing to new developments in signal processing and enhancing the integration of live instruments and electronics, with the ultimate aim of delivering to the listener the most satisfying experience possible. In the works submitted, my special interest has been to investigate which current techniques, media, software, and interfaces are most appropriate for each given work. I have balanced these against existing standards which have long been fixed through tradition and technology – thus contributing to a better understanding of works of the past and at the same time seeking to move forward in the field of composition, sound design, live computer music, performance and spatialization.
