Thinking Through Collage: An Approach in "Collage Suite"
This thesis consists of two parts: the first part being a composition of three movements for a chamber ensemble, and the second part being the accompanying essay which analyzes important facets of the composition. The name of the piece is “Collage Suite,” and is submitted as a transposing score. The accompanying essay discusses the concept of “conceptual collage” built upon touchstones of fugue, waltz, and scherzo. In addition, the essay also analyzes how the material within each movement of the composition contributes to the notion of “conceptual collage.”
