Foliage By Elliott Sharp
eBook (ePub): $9.99
With Foliage, composer and conceptualist Elliott Sharp presents both the score to a graphic composition open for any orchestration and a visual work. As Sharp describes it: “The roots of this... More > project lie in my desire to depict the musical processes at play in my Inner Ear and to use them as performance strategies for their realization by any musician.” But Foliage is a piece of retinal art as much as it is an instruction set for sound: form and function interlocked. Each individual page is complete in itself, some more simple, others not so. One may also look at the pages as sequences and sub-sequences – when quickly scrolled, they become animations. All have been created through multiple layers of processing. The result is a manifestation of an internal synesthesia that is the translation of thought, emotion, and process from one part of the spectrum to another. Includes a written Introduction by Sharp and a Forward by media artist Christian Marclay.< Less
Space and Spatialization In Contemporary Music: History and Analysis, Ideas and Implementations By Maria Anna Harley
eBook (PDF): $10.00
This dissertation presents the history of space in the musical thought of the 20th­ century (from Kurth to Clifton, from Varese to Xenakis) and outlines the development of spatialization in the... More > theory and practice of contemporary music (after 1950). The text emphasizes perceptual and temporal aspects of musical spatiality, thus reflecting the close connection of space and time in human experience. A new definition of spatialization draws from Ingarden's notion of the musical work; a typology of spatial designs embraces music for different acoustic environments, movements of performers and audiences, various positions of musicians in space, etc. The study of spatialization includes a survey of the composers's writings (lves, Boulez, Stockhausen, Cage, etc.) and an examination of their works. The final part presents three unique approaches to spatialization: Brant's simultaneity of sound layers, Xenakis's movement of sound, and Schafer's music of ritual and soundscape.< Less
