Green, Ashley (2014) Portfolio of compositions using causality as a musical parameter. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

The main body of this thesis consists of three drone pieces, all with a special concern with causality as a crucial musical parameter, within semi-improvised mixed music settings.

This accompanying commentary gives a theoretical background to the pieces, as well as documenting the pragmatic considerations of their technical implementation, with a special emphasis on real-time audio mosaicking.

This accompanying commentary anchors the pieces within an aesthetic and theoretical background.

The coding and implementation of digital and hybrid instruments, as well as their practical implementation was at the core of the compositional work, as well as mixed-music concerns of integrating the loudspeaker sound with that of the acoustic instrument.

The text will then position mixed-music more generally within current technological trends, and how this position extends the music presented here.
