This thesis consists of a portfolio of original compositions and a commentary. The portfolio is divided into two major groups: concert music and collaborative music. There are six concert pieces including two solo works, one for guitar and one percussion, one string quartet with electronics, an oboe and percussion piece with real-time electronics, one septet and one orchestral work. Collaborative pieces are represented by the score for a contemporary dance choreography and the music for a theatre play. Other collaborative works not included in the portfolio will be briefly commented upon. The commentary will mainly concentrate on the aesthetics behind my praxis as a composer through the analysis of the works presented on the portfolio. I will also present a philosophical discussion of what musical composition represents nowadays to me in relation to Postmodernism.
