The six works presented in this portfolio are composed for brass band and percussion, selected as they show artistic and technical advancements when compared with extant literature and methodology. The accompanying commentary discusses the patronage problems that the British brass band appears to be currently experiencing, deliberating whether its insular persona has been created by the movement's proclivity for contesting and upholding heritage. The portfolio explores a fresh approach towards compositional practice for the medium, with a view to re-establish a connection with contemporary audiences. It reconsiders this appeal by questioning the fundamental language band music employs, exploring cross-disciplinary collaboration amongst other new approaches, in pursuit of elevating interest.
