This document describes the processes and development of my compositional work, particularly concerning the introduction of modifications of timbral qualities, including combinations, and hybridization procedures. It describes compositional ethodologies, developed within a technological environment, and the interrelation between theoretical thought and computational approach.

The following chapters present time, frequency, and timbre as materials of investigation, analysis, and re-composition, through real time electroacoustic strategies and treatments. The preparation and design of specific software, through the utilization of programming language Max/MSP Jitter, will illustrate the computational approach to composing, its inner correspondence with the theoretical approach, and interconnections with preparation and performing activity. Procedures progressively applied to the portfolio of compositions are presented in the final chapters of the document.

The portfolio consists of six works completed during the last six years, for instruments and real time electronic treatment, presented as a CD with the complete recordings of three compositions, four scores, and a DVD, containing video recording of two works. The last three compositions presented are also part of a cycle of works –still in progress- dedicated to the whole instrumental spectrum, in which the voice represents the physical-musical material of each work.
