Baldwin, Michael (2012) Reflections on Ephemerality and Notation in my Recent Work. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

The following thesis and the accompanying portfolio of compositions represent two recent starnds of musical interest: ephemerality and the role of notation. Throughout the thesis I explicate the various ways I ahve engaged with these concerns and their application in my work. Additionally, I aim to situate my work within context of contemporary compositional reactices as a way of showing both origins of influence and ways in which my own work extends/ expands on these influences. The thesis will address issue regarding the materiality impermanency of scores, documentation, interpersonal relationships, performative situations, and the performer/ notation interface.
