This thesis, which is made up of both practical compositional work and a commentary, proposes a new relationship between composition, notation, improvised music, and technology. This thesis proposes ways in which technology can facilitate new approaches to the integration of composition, notation and improvisation. This thesis considers how our understanding of, and relationship to, composition and improvisation change when new technologies are used in performance settings. The thesis also suggests how contemporary practitioners can employ technologies practically to create new methodologies that challenge older, more established, paradigms. This thesis also suggests practical ways in which technology can be employed to challenge and extend traditional concepts of notation, form and genre. As well as proposing and examining practical issues, this thesis develops a new conceptual framework within the commentary, to help discuss the practice-based discoveries of the project.
