The writing of this thesis is based on my experience of music researchand creation in recent years. The object discussed in the thesis is my own music creation. This thesis selects one of my mixed ensemble works named The South Wind and Flowers, analyzed it from the perspective of polyphony, the structure, characteristics of melody, rhythm, meter, harmony, imitation and so on. By analyzing my doctoral work at the University of Minnesota, I hope that I can further understand my own composing methods and make continuous progress in my future composing.
