The album Odalisque by the indie rock band Sanglorians is the culmination of many years of deep personal, artistic, and technical work. Many aspects of the composition, arrangement, performance, and recording of the project album were widely influenced by the methodologies espoused within the Master of Music program in Commercial Music Composition and Arranging at California State University, Los Angeles. This project report explores these methodologies of commercial music composition as they were applied to each song during the songwriting, arranging, and production processes. Approached as a scholarly personal narrative manuscript, each song's genesis is sourced, and its meaning examined in proper creative context within the whole.
