Cross-disciplinary in its approach, through the internal frameworks of collaboration, this exegesis explores a series of case studies with non-guitarist composers, documenting the why and how aspects of collaboration in the context of creating new music. The primary focus is on how to translate non-guitarist composers’ ideas effectively onto the guitar: to create music for the guitar which is idiomatic while maintaining compositional integrity.
