Abstract

Cynosure is an orchestral piece that seeks to create a synthesis between contemporary art-music processes and vernacular musical materials and gestures: a piece which is ‘thoroughly’ vernacular and ‘thoroughly’ art music. The simplest of motivic material is processed and developed using a post-Serial process of motivic transformation, and the harmonic language used in the piece works to demonstrate a functionality that moves beyond a ‘common practice’ understanding of tonal function.
