With my own artistic practice as a point of departure, I will map and expand on my approach to texture and sound in composition and improvised music. The mapping will serve as a tool for creating new music. During the process of mapping, on top of potential structural considerations, additionally, metaphors as an analytical, productive and meaning-making perspective will play a pivotal role. The process will culminate in new music with accompanying critical reflection. The products will published both as physical copies (music) as well as digitally (reflection) on international platforms.
