This dissertation examines the role that timbre and microtones perform in my music and how these elements are intrinsically linked. Timbre and microtones are the two most important features behind my compositional approach to this point and are used to enhance the aesthetic expression in my works. This is demonstrated by the analysis of four works written between 2007-10 including: Tensility-Vortex, The German Hills, The Styx and Zodiac Turbulence.
