Overview

Research: Creating a portfolio of original compositions with the following aims:

Creating expressive and complex music that is also comprehensible to an audience.

A form of post-tonal (MODAL) Neo-Romanticism focussed on the development of interval-based motifs over the span of an entire work or movement.

The understanding and development of the expressionistic and dramatic qualities of particular intervals for programmatic and non-programmatic music.

Developing an ability to apply this compositional aesthetic to a variety of music including ensembles of various size and genres detailed below.
