Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Abstraction, recursive meta-structures, and collage as a compositional method for deconstructed source material
by Lovitch, Zachary Alexander, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 85; 1520871
Abstract (Summary)

Despite the overwhelming recent interest in appropriation-based composition, there is a lack of developed processes for organizing borrowed material. This study will explore a solution and its application in the composition, 27-1. Utilizing Deconstructionist philosophy as inspiration, 27-1 is a rather unconventional "collage" that is a rearrangement of the first movement in Beethoven's Piano Sonata, op. 27, no. 1.
