The basis of this composition is a portfolio of six original compositions with and analysis of each. All compositions have been composed under the title ‘Music from other Worlds’. These works range from small ensembles of just four instruments, to a large orchestral piece. The instruments used are greatly varied in each composition. Each work brings the listener into a new world created by a combination of different texture, timbres, subject matter, styles, and compositional techniques. This portfolio provided a constitution of the development of the compositional skills and styles first learnt in the undergraduate programme. Volume 1 This contains an analysis of each piece under the following headings; 1. Background 2. Musical Features 3. Analysis It also contains a conclusion and a bibliography. Volume 2 This contains the score of all six compositions and an accompanying CD with MIDI tracks and recordings. The pieces composed are as follows: From under the Pitched (Bongos 1&2, Claves, Woodblock, Maracas, Gong, Marimba, Xylophone) Trust in the Lord (Tenor 1&2, Baritone, Bass) Disambiguation – (A series under subjection) (Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, Horn) Aslan’s Song (Orchestral) On Mulberry Street (Mezzo Soprano, Flute, Vibraphone, Harpsichord)
