Abstract

This written commentary complements my practice-led research in works for piano and fixed media. I explore the symbiotic relations of notation of electronic sounds and how these assist synchronicity in my performance and artistic practice. As a methodological tool, this document features a categorisation varying from precise to hybrid and imprecise notation. The range of categories has been necessary in order to evaluate the performance implications, which vary significantly when considering the intended outcomes. This investigation provides examples of commissioned works, which have been analysed alongside existing repertoire. Outcomes of this research have been demonstrated through my performative analysis of works for piano and electronics. The main aims of this research are to provide a guide for the realisation and understanding of these works, and to promote performance and composition of works for piano and electronics.
