The following chapters describe compositional methods applied to the compositions of the portfolio (Volume I), which consists of eight works for instruments and electronic sound, as well as one purely electronic piece. The main concern in all these works is aspects of open form and, to a lesser extent, indeterminacy during performance. I highlight the research I have undertaken in preparation for each of the compositions, show how all of these pieces are progressively linked by my evolving interest in open form, and place them in context with works by other composers, past and present, who have employed similar, or different, experimental procedures. Volume II, the composition commentary, includes a technical appendix, explaining the different software processes for the individual works, and a recourses appendix containing recordings of all of the nine compositions, as well as all of the Max patches, Max for Live devices and sound files I have programmed and created for the electronic parts of the pieces.
