This thesis explores holistic approaches to the performing body. Beginning with the inner world of sensation, I discuss Anna Halprin’s use of emotional geography and associative scoring in her community rituals. In Lawrence “Butch” Morris’ Conductions, I consider the body as score. And in an analysis of Sophia Gubaidulina’s symphony Stimmen… Verstummen…, I describe the use of gesture as it is functions to frame the body as a symbol of transformation. I then describe the affect of these representative methods of composing for the performing body as they manifest in own work, using specific examples from (de)attachment for saxophone quartet.
