This portfolio of original compositions presents ten pieces which investigate the potential of applying Spectral Diffusion techniques to music composition. The main objective is to explore new possibilities for creative expression through the identification of the full potential of these techniques and their application to a range of different musical genres. The systematisation of Spectral Diffusion methodologies is organised into three different levels of complexity, which represent the depth of these techniques and the new compositional vocabulary emerging from them. As a result, this portfolio provides examples of the usability of Spectral Diffusion integrated in the field of mixed media composition and instrumental music in computer aided composition, including ensembles of acoustic instruments, solo pieces, live improvisations and interactive installations.
