It asks how effectively can a composer achieve this This thesis explores the restrictions of the ideas of style and genre fusion by examining if one genre will overpower the other in terms of its sonic signature and social ideals or if a balanced fusion can be achieved? Another question of interest, is how far apart can two fusions by the same composer of the same two genres stylistically be from one another? The study consists of a portfolio of compositions that explore the subject and his accompanying thesis will discuss the research that informed them as well as some discussion of the compositions themselves.
