This composition portfolio consists of six original compositions, as listed below: String Trio (Violin, Viola and Violoncello, 2015) Duet for Clarinets (2 Clarinets in Bb, 2015) A reed before the wind ... (Chamber Orchestra, with Shēng and Clarinet soloists, 2016) Singing Ringing Tree (Solo Flute, 2016) A Summer Night (Flute, Clarinet, Percussion, Piano, Violin, Violoncello, with Mezzo-Soprano soloist, 2016) Convergences (Symphony Orchestra, 2017) The following commentary gives details of the research conducted during the process of their composition. This includes chapters discussing the following specific research areas: the influence of music from cultures outside the Western concert hall tradition, the use of pattern within the process of composing, the importance of line and teleology, and the exploration of performer freedom in my work. The sixth chapter discusses how the previous investigations into these topics for earlier works influenced the outcome of Convergences, the final and largest piece in the portfolio.
