1. Muzzo, Grace Kingsbury. An examination of compositional approach in arvo part's te deum and john tavener's ikon of light.

Degree: DMA, Music, 2004, University of Georgia

The purpose of this document is to promote an understanding of the aesthetic philosophies and the compositional approach of two contemporary composers, Arvo Part and John Tavener. These composers are often associated together for the emphasis they place on spiritual matters and because much of their oeuvre is sacred choral music. Their music has been described as minimalist, as neo-medieval, as simple; and it has received I considerable popular acclaim from the general public. This document presents a review of the literature and an analysis of two I representative works: Arvo Part's Te Deum, and John Tavener's Ikon of Light. A I comparison is then made regarding their compositional approach. There are discussions in the literature regarding Part and Tavener, but there are few substantial studies of their work. This document seeks to examine the techniques and methods of the two composers by examining two substantial works for chorus and string ensemble. The technique of tintinnabuli used by Part dictates a highly structured and formulaic approach to melody and to rhythm, using a reduced palette of melodic and rhythmic materials. Tavener is more eclectic in his choices; he is attentive to balanced and symmetrical structures and to the manipulation of sonority and silence for expressive purposes. The clear presentation of the text is of paramount importance to both i composers. While both composers share a similar ethos and religious tradition, their compositions are significantly different. These differences emerge upon a careful examination of Te Deum and Ikon of Light. Advisors/Committee Members: Mary Leglar.

2. Pfalz, Andrew. Towards a Method for the Analysis of Experimental Music.

Degree: 2014, East Carolina University

This paper discusses the nature of experimental music, its reception, and suggests a method for its analysis. It gives a definition for this body of music and traces its historical development. A continuum is constructed along which pieces fall that has at one end works conceived in a purely aesthetical way, and at the other end there are works for which an underlying conceptual apparatus forms an inextricable compositional element.    The field of analysis is discussed in terms of its history and its place in discussions of music today. It is shown that analysis, as we know it today, arose during the era of tonal music as a means of legitimizing members of the classical canon, and thereby tacitly denigrating others. The literature is shown to be united on the idea that analysis today needs to meet music on its own terms and highlight both a piece's individuality and its way place in today's society.    The method for analysis includes some more traditional approaches which are adapted to deal with music which seeks not only to be aesthetically moving, but to further a conceptual goal. New methods and techniques are suggested. A number of common pitfalls are outlined, which should be avoided in discussions of this type of music.   As a proof of concept, three exemplary short analyses are offered. The pieces were chosen as a way of demonstrating the strengths of the methodology suggested. The point of this endeavor is to provide the legitimacy these pieces deserve. If a piece is discussed on its own terms, its craftsmanship can be brought out. Likewise, if a systematic investigation of a piece is executed it will be possible to demonstrate why a piece is less than optimal, rather than merely casting it off without much consideration. Hopefully, this whole body of music can gain more scrutiny and acceptance through the application of approaches like the one described in this paper.
