by Eckstein, Lisa C., D.M.A., George Mason University, 2020, 525; 28259206
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation discusses compositional techniques used by Mark Camphouse in the twelve of his published pieces that he believes are his best and most important. These techniques define his overall characteristic sound and are identified through comparisons among the selected works. An analysis of these devices provides insights into why his music is recognizable as being written by him—what makes Camphouse sound like Camphouse. This study also illuminates the inspirations for these twelve pieces by sharing the composer’s stories behind the notes. The results are intended to serve as a reference for musicians who wish to gain insights into Camphouse’s musical compositions and his unique style of composing to better interpret, perform, and communicate his music.
