Isaac, Andrew (2013) The construction of constricted soundworlds through limited materials, cyclic processes, interference and extended tunings. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

The portfolio of music and accompanying thesis examines the construction of constricted soundworlds. The portfolio creates these soundworlds through two approaches. The first approach explores harmonic unity over an extended duration by using a combination of limited materials and extended harmonic language influenced by abstract visual art. The second approach employs the repetition of a melodic row, which is then extended by the use of compositional techniques including cyclic processes and interference. The thesis investigates my approach to the compositional techniques of the portfolio, explaining in detail different facets of limited materials, extended tuning systems and visual art. I draw on examples from the portfolio and from wider contextual resources that incorporate similar compositional techniques.
