Sellart, Bernat Giribet (2020) Gesture as a bridge between visual art and music composition. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

This commentary of the pieces written during the academic course 2018-2019 explains the basis of my aesthetical orientations focused in a gestural approach. There is a significant influence from visual artists who affected directly to my compositions. From them I extract aesthetical concepts related to gesture, as is the case of fragility, imperfection, interaction, control and spontaneity. The commentary will also examine the composition technics used, explaining the notation used and exemplifying other composers who did similar approaches. As a result of the research five compositions have been done: Enso, Horizon, Coloratura, Papallona project and Bottom-up.
