Book Description

Form and Process in Music, 1300–2014: An Analytic Sampler draws together papers delivered at the 2014 meeting of the West Coast Conference of Music Theory and Analysis. The conference spanned an unusually wide spectrum of musical styles, including papers on European twelve-tone music after the Second World War, fourteenth-century music, pop music and jazz, the music of living composers, narrative and characterization, and the history of music theory. The title of the book reflects the large span of musical cultures that are represented within, but also accounts for the common thread through all of these essays, a strong emphasis on understanding the forms and processes of music through analysis. The reader will find within it a compendium of analytic techniques for numerous musical styles.

This is a bit late, but I'm pleased to share that I was featured, along with fellow GC composition student Elizabeth Adams and GC Faculty member Dr. Jeff Nichols in The Wall Street Journal for our participation in a concert at the Tenri Cultural Institute on Saturday, October 17th, 2015. Part of the “Anti-Capitalist Concert Series” founded by GC composer Elizabeth Adams and composer Julie Harting, the theme of income-inequality was the point of inspiration for each new composition. The article, entitled “Turning Wonky Economic Graphs into Chamber Music,” delves into the specific inspirations behind each new work, including quotes from the composers and photos from the event. The concert featured the Cadillac Moon Ensemble performing, as well as a discussion led by Chad Kautzer, a professor at the University of Colorado, Denver.
