Crichton, Colin (2013) Composing for Instruments and Electronics; a commentary on my recent music. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

The research presented here illustrates my interest and response to composing for acoustic instruments and electronics through the presentation of a body of eclectic works which combine an improvisatory approach to writing for acoustic instruments with the use of the studio as a compositional tool. The commentary will seek to illustrate how bringing these approaches together has allowed for a diversity of sonic exploration that would not have been possible with purely acoustic or electronic resources. As well as providing some background information and a general descriptive breakdown of the structure of these works, the commentary will provide a more in-depth contextualisation, which serves to illustrate the various influences upon the works. I will conclude by illustrating where this research has taken me and give examples of possibilities for future exploration.
