This composition portfolio contains seven pieces which explore different ways to create strategies for composing and performing with instrumentalists when digital technology is involved. Through these works, I aim to create musical dialogues exploring the following broad relationships: composer-performer, performer-improviser, pre-recorded and live sound, and open and fixed forms. These relationships are regarded as continua, rather than binary opposites – I aim to compose with the musical dialogues that emerge from them. Working with these relationships has led to an approach which is largely a synthesis of processes borrowed from experimental practice found in jazz, improvisation, classical, and electronic music production techniques. The dialogues found in the works rely mainly on a solo instrumentalist providing sound as a source material, either performed live or pre-sampled. Two of the pieces rely on pre-recorded instrumental sound and require no live instrumentalist in their presentation; the rest are for laptop and another instrumentalist. Part of my submission refers to soundfiles, and performance materials. The Max patches submitted are personal improvisation tools. My performances with those tools have been guided by the scores submitted.
