Abstract: The commentaries contained in this volume supplement the four pieces of chamber music I composed in my research toward the Master of Philosophy degree. Those pieces, in chronological order of completion, are It Plays You for saxophone quartet, I Am the Rose of Sharon for six voices and string trio, The Opposite of the World for eleven instruments, and Trying to get the feeling back that I had in 1972 for solo viola. The commentaries aim to establish the cultural suppositions on whose basis these pieces were conceived, the technical and aesthetic considerations that informed their composition, and the strategies by which they advance the author's critical project.
Description: This thesis was submitted for the degree of Master of Philosophy and awarded by Brunel University.
