Integrating analytical elements through transpositional combination in two works by George Crumb

by Moseley, Brian Christopher.

Abstract (Summary)
This study investigates ways that transpositional combination (TC) can be used to enhance our understanding of the pitch, form, and extra-musical elements of George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae and Lux Aeterna. Through TC, this thesis develops the idea that Crumb’s music often contains basic pitch material from which larger sets or collections are generated, and that this process is often allied with other musical elements.
