MetadataShow full item record
The present work consists of a composition for ensemble, Fort/ Da, and a theoretical paper that will provide insights on some of the ideas contained in the music. This work is therefore divided in three sections: concepts and materials, analysis, and the score of Fort/Da. The first chapter presents a reflection on the aesthetics behind the piece, in order to provide an overview of the techniques used in the composition. Among them, the concept of formal process and instrumental synthesis elaborated by Gérard Grisey, and the notion of complex sounds from Tristan Murail are discussed. The second part presents an analysis of the piece, which will consist on a detailed commentary on the music and its elements. The third part of the work is the score of Fort/Da.
