Towards and beyond a Surrealist methodology of music composition for the 21st century. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.
|PDF - Accepted Version|
This work comprises a portfolio of 90 minutes of music and this accompanying commentary. Its aim is to chronicle and examine the exploration of the possibility of developing a Surrealist methodology of music composition in the twenty-first century. The commentary features three main chapters, with each presenting a major area of my research. These areas are:
1: Surrealism and Surrealist music (historically)
2: Developing the concepts of logic and praxis in music composition (and justifying their requirement as a basis for Surrealist exploration)
3: Developing and exploring Surrealist approaches to music composition
Examination will be undertaken of such challenges as the relative lack of an existing Surrealist musical basis from which to proceed, the large expanse of time since the end of the Surrealist movement, and the challenge of evolving my methodology as Surrealism’s viability comes into doubt.
