Abstract

Composition and Making Practice: an approach through persistence and difference, is a research based on the composition as an ongoing process of making which seem to have no end continuing beyond the outcomes. In this manner, through the research, composition is considered as a process unique every time, answering to specific emerging contexts, presenting different ways to address it.

During this research, Andrea Paz Torres Viedma reviews a number of concepts, methods and approaches relevant to such area, by relating, analysing and practising some of them in order to give form to a particular approach along these pages.

In this manner, the research is questioning ‘what might composition be’ and ‘how something is composed’, not aiming for finding something new but rather for finding difference. Thus, persistence and difference are the key aspects, and from there a number of considerations are drawn throughout the research.

Finally, through the research, a practice is proposed for facing the process of composition, taking into account the uncertainty, the unknown and the unnamed. Likewise through the practice of such approach, some processes have evolved, surfacing in this way, four outcomes to be addressed last.
