This portfolio of original works and commentary is submitted for the qualification of PhD in June 2013. Its intention is to give a representative account of my compositional journey since I began reading for the qualification in 2005. The portfolio contains small-scale works and large-scale works of varying durations with the intention being to display a high level of understanding of the subject matter combined with compositional flair and talent. At the outset, the challenges were to develop my compositional skills to a higher level, compose longer-scale works and find a medium I felt comfortable writing for that also complimented my writing style. My aim has been to show the distinct difference in my work from the beginning and the end of the course in this portfolio. I feel that I am much more of an accomplished composer now who has a distinctive style and character to my music. This portfolio and commentary will act as a guide to my thought process during the compositional tasks in addition to my personal musical and compositional background and influences.
