This thesis consists of a portfolio of compositions in acoustic and electronic media with an accompanying commentary. The central theme of these works is the development of new strategies for the integration of diverse sound sources, styles and performance aesthetics. Key topics include the fusing of dramatic structures from classical and popular music, the blending of acoustic and electronic instruments, performance strategies for electroacoustic music with live musicians, how concert music can engage with the idea of “the mix” from commercial music, the creation of sound worlds that interpolate between conventional ‘musical’ ingredients and environmental sound.
