The Composition of Timbre: A Multidimensional Approach

After three years of intense work as a doctoral researcher at the University of Leeds, it is my pleasure to share with you the results. The PhD thesis is now available on White Rose eTheses Online, thus you can download the whole document as well as the scores of the pieces that integrate this research:

Additionally, you can listen to the compositions on this SoundCloud playlist, where I have collected live recordings of the premieres, reading sessions and rehearsals:

I highly appreciate the generosity of all the composers who inspired my research and allowed me to include their works in my thesis. I had the opportunity to share my study on timbre with some of them and those conversations definitely enriched my perspective.

During this period of time, I was funded by the University of Leeds through an AHC Doctoral Research Scholarship granted by the Faculty of Arts Humanities and Cultures. I can’t thank enough to my supervisors Prof Martin Iddon and Dr Scott McLaughlin for their invaluable support and guide during this process, all my admiration and gratitude.
