MetadataShow full item record
The thesis presents and examines my compositional process and creative methodology in producing three compositions for meditation purposes. The purpose was to compose three original pieces of chamber music that created a subjective musical picture that captured a mood and a depictive sound. For each work the author describes his intention for the composition and analyses the compositional elements such as melody, harmony, and thematic construction. A brief history and an overview of meditation is included, followed by an illustration on music and its elemental effect on meditation. This work examines the concepts of, and serves as an exercise in exploring, a variety of compositional techniques.
