Abstract: This thesis mainly presents my original musical composition, Just One Thing, a composition for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, percussion and piano. The piece was made by investigating various possibilities arising from a one-measure musical idea. Furthermore, the resulting hybrid-like composition refers to rock, bossa nova and minimalist music, in a way that challenges performers to work together in a rhythmically complex environment. This composition can be viewed as a culminating statement of my musical work to date, as it combines my long background working pop music with elements of concert music composition.
