1. Wei, Chih-Chen. Clouds.

Degree: DMA, Composition, 2009, University of Southern California

Clouds is a 12-minute long work for orchestra inspired by the transformations of clouds in the sky. Cast in a single movement, there are six main sections, although the dividing line between each is deliberately obscured. The entire piece starts slowly and ultimately reaches a wild multi-voiced, frantic climax which is followed by a detached and contemplative mood at the end. Aspects of Chinese landscape painting and the direct physical connection between the painter and the meditational approach used in this ancient tradition played a key role in the shaping of the long heterophonically treated melodic phrases that ultimately determine the work's structure. The final goal is to express an idealistic, optimistic, harmonious and beautiful view of paradise in the hope of nurturing mankind's spirit. Advisors/Committee Members: Hartke, Stephen (Committee Chair), Moore, Robert S. (Committee Member), Lesemann, Frederick (Committee Member).

2. Thomson, Christopher Michael. Typologies of male and female adolescent perpetrators of dating violence: three subtypes for males and four subtypes for females, and differences among them.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2010, University of Southern California

The study s purpose was twofold: (i) identify subtypes for adolescent male and female perpetrators of dating violence, and (ii) examine distal and proximal risk factors of adolescent dating violence for differing male and female typologies. A cluster analysis was used to develop perpetrator typologies: 3-clusters emerged for males  – generally violent; situational violent; and non-violent; and 4-clusters emerged for females  – depressed attention seeker; hostile controller; undifferentiated controller; and non-violent. Two separate MANCOVA were conducted, one for males and one for females, using age and SES as covariates, to test whether the typologies differed by risk factors (dependent variables). Overall, adolescent perpetrator typologies differed by distal and proximal risk factors. Typologies differed from one another within their gender as well as between gender groups (e.g. males vs. females). Generally violent males had higher scores on parent-child violence and witnessing inter-parental violence, compared to situational violent and non-violent males. Generally violent males had higher scores on acceptance of violence, school/community violence, alcohol/drug use, and number of dating partners compared to non-violent males. Compared to non-violent females, the depressed attention seeker females had higher scores on school/community violence, seriousness of relationship, number of dating partners, and length of time dating. The hostile controller females and undifferentiated controller females had higher scores on parent-child violence, alcohol/drug use, and number of dating partners compared to non-violent females. This study suggests a need for clinical findings to be included in initial assessments and treatment matching for adolescent perpetrator typologies. Advisors/Committee Members: Zebrack, Brad J. (Committee Chair), O'Keefe, Maura (Committee Member), Moore, Robert S. (Committee Member).

3. Harlan, Brian Timothy. One voice: a reconciliation of Harry Partch's disparate theories.

Degree: PhD, Music History & Literature, 2007, University of Southern California

The study of American, microtonal composer Harry Partch (1901-1974) is complicated by specious autobiographical accounts, contradictory theoretical positions, and a methodology predicated on a vague concept of intuition. These complications are exacerbated by his use of a forty-three-tone scale, non-Western sources of inspiration, novel terms for preexisting ideas, and an integration of music, drama, and dance. In addition, his use of ratios to represent pitch, and the unique tablature notations for his nearly forty invented instruments create a seemingly insurmountable barrier to the analysis of his music. Yet while these complexities are initially overwhelming, they actually work to obscure the simplicity of Partch's core ideas and compositional technique. At the foundation of all his ideas was an individualistic concept he called One Voice. One Voice was the process by which Partch projected his self image through his works. In doing so, he created a model that aimed to inspire others toward individual expression and artistic investigation. The concept of One Voice is often treated as a byproduct of Partch's more well-known theories, namely Monophony (his intonation scheme), and Corporealism (his performance aesthetic). On closer examination, however, it can be shown that One Voice was in fact his most fundamental theory.; This dissertation will provide new insight into Partch's work by reevaluating it from the perspective of One Voice as his fundamental theory. It will be asserted that both his writings and his compositions support this view, and that Monophony and Corporealism developed out of the concept of One Voice. Along with this thesis, a new methodology for analyzing his music will be proposed to test the assumptions made. By addressing his music directly, Partch's contributions as a composer can be presented in conjunction with his contributions as a theorist. The intent is to reveal the consistency between his theory and music. Despite claims to the contrary, analysis shows that Partch's music did follow the principles laid out in his theory. Musical analysis and the concept of One Voice help to reconcile many of the contradictions that arise in Partch's work, and they allow a holistic understanding of this work for the first time.
