ABSTRACT My research investigated the practicability of diverse electroacoustic music compositional approaches which were applied in a series of works that explored specific relationships between real-world and abstracted sound materials, through the strategic use of pitched, melodic and non-pitched materials (and specific characters and behaviours of those materials) as integral elements in the compositional process. My main aim was to explore all of these different levels in a musical way via electroacoustic music and to present transformed aspects of Greece. In addition, I attempted to explore new electroacoustic music territories by undertaking a journey from real-world instrumental and concrete soundworlds based on Traditional Greek Instruments towards abstract soundworlds.
