Abstract

Music for Flute and Piano is a determinate composition for these two instruments. The technique used consists of serial saturations of pitch and rhythm as a starting point; however, the end result departed from strict adherence to serial procedure toward an intuitive variation of an 'A' and 'B' theme. A Script for Violinist incorporates determinacy and indeterminacy into a score; it is an exploration of violin idioms made 'in the moment,' capturing the many possibilities of bowing, fingering, and timing that become individualized by the performer.
