This Folio of Compositions represents over three years of practice-led research into harnessing a personal melodic impulse and finding different ways to utilise fragmentary musical ideas in the creation of large-scale musical structures. The eight pieces presented here were composed between October 2008 and June 2012 and chart a developmental process of investigation, deconstruction and assimilation in the creation of an individual musical voice. They are the result of my exploration of a variety of compositional techniques - some seek to explore only one thing, whilst others are more diverse in their approach - but throughout they are unified by the primacy of melodies (of various kinds) in their construction.
