This portfolio of compositions contains ten pieces, composed between 2012 and 2016. It is a mixed portfolio, representative of a broad range of my musical interests rather than one which specialises exclusively on a single facet of my output. There are several strands of thought which emerge from this portfolio; I regard them as inter-connected and braided together throughout my work. They are fundamental to my composing and are central to the development of my personal musical language. For the sake of concision and cohesion I have grouped them into three sections: 1) the search for clarity, at all levels but particularly that of form and design, 2) exploring aspects of repetition within these pieces, and 3) the influence of cinematic practice upon the compositional process, specifically the impact of visual techniques (such as film editing) on the assembly of musical structures. That discussion is followed by commentaries on the individual pieces included in this portfolio.
