To transform my explorations into musical compositions, I decided to use my spontaneously recorded improvisations as a starting point for further structured musical compositions. This method of composition starts without having any preconceived ideas of what to compose or perform but rather as an exploratory experiment to allow the flow of thoughts, emotions, and techniques to manifest themselves in free improvisations.
To start the composing process, I choose a recording and listen to it many times in order to analyze and transcribe what I have improvised. I then apply subtle changes and constraints to it with the intention of transforming it into a composition that can be performed solo or in an ensemble.
The purpose of this approach is to be open and eager to discover what one can do with the instrument rather than apply a certain set of techniques or structures. It has served to stretch my boundaries and explore previously undiscovered possibilities, which has helped to expand my own self-expression as a composer.
