Summary Creatio ex Materia is a two-movement composition for chamber ensemble that attempts to uncover unique timbres and rhythmic consequences through the use of contemporary concepts and techniques. It employs nontraditional combinations of instruments and blending of extended techniques to craft innovative sounds, while trying to express abstract principles such as the transfer of energy and the illusion of parts influencing and "learning from" one another. Additionally, this piece pursues the implications of joining aleatoric methods and graphic notation with more stringent approaches like mathematical process and standard notation.
