Theory Qualifying Project III


A project dealing with theoretical systems designed for understanding a particular repertoire of music. The music should be drawn from the repertoire (tonal or post-tonal) not chosen for Qualifying Project I. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate familiarity, competence, and flexibility in the use of theoretical systems. In contrast with the project described in Qualifying Project I, any musical analyses should illustrate the points made about theoretical systems under consideration. Ideally this project will also demonstrate the ability to extrapolate and extend existing systems. OR A project on a more abstract methodological or speculative topic. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate an ability to address the critical and philosophical issues that form the conceptual underpinning of analytical and theoretical work.
