This submission comprises my recent compositions and accompanying writings, which depict a compositional practice that redirects attention to the nuances of musical activities that generally remain unnoticed. My works explore the impact of miniature durations upon form, the musical decisions behind score cosmetics, and listening as a creative practice.

The portfolio predominantly consists of compositions gathered in series, ranging from music that calls for microscopic care, to music for imagined sound, to alternative listening modes for concert situations.

The associated writings contextualise and reflect upon this approach to music making by reviewing literature on auditory morphogenesis (J. Tenney, A. Bregman, B. Snyder), non-traditional notation (C. Cardew, C. Wolff, E. Tufte), and on music as a network of activities (H. Brün, T. Coffey, C. Small).
