The Contemporary Classical Composer's Bullshit Generator
My most personal mechanism always features strongly in any of my quartal compositions. I was first introduced to the concept of 'eclecticly-Stockhausenesque orchestration-illusions' last year, and it has allowed me a greater depth of installations, especially whilst developing the ultimate mechanism.

My latest composition explores the boundaries between sounds and conflicts, whilst utilising a highly apparent attitude to a traditional, periodic sculpture. I am very much influenced by the idea of contextualising theoretical intricacies, particularly whilst combined with a highly tonal approach to meanings. The fact that tessituras tend to (at least in their repetitive state), textually compose, even in the presence of a strong material, is, you will agree, patently absurd.
