Abstract

Prelude to a Composition by Research Thesis: Shall I compare thee to other research? Thou art less work and of less gen'ral use, or so say musicologists who perch on piles of books which vex them and confuse. But truth be told all this does have an aim, involving guiding listeners through a piece - even if you might call their ear “untrained' - and so my work, in part, consists of this: Spectrally analysing overtones and the bass clarinet's multiphonics; a pitch hierarchy using microtones decides a note's relation to the tonic. If asked what my research topic may be, I simply reply, 'my own harmony.'
