MetadataShow full item record
This thesis combines the score of an original work by Arthur Roth for double bass and electric guitar with effects entitled The Generation Variations with a written analysis. The analysis presents the intent, method and purpose of the work. As such, it explicates the piece in an historical context with respect to music for the double bass soloist, compositional context regarding style, era, process, rationale as well as performance practice of the movements. It also outlines the creative inspiration, composition methods and processes used to develop the work both generally, and specifically, with each variation. Finally, this writing concludes with suggestions of newly discovered areas of composition and performance, and alludes to future directions for the development of this piece and for the creation of new music for the double bass soloist.
