Abstract: Winds of Change attempts to build upon the recent tradition of monophonic compositional practice by combining techniques directed at setting a central musical line to maintain interest and create textural clarity. These techniques are primarily inspired by the works of George Crumb and Tan Dun. Winds of Change also includes found and built percussion instruments, which are employed to create a unique timbral sound environment. The combination of these two elements is intended to create a monophonic work that is both expressively clear and unique. Chapter I concerns the basic purpose of the thesis and accompanying document. Chapter II focuses on specific techniques and compositional processes used in Winds of Change.
