 Music After 1950
Departing from intuitive aspects of the musical grammaródensity, cadential gestures, motivic/intervallic identityóand extending analytical strategies of Jonathan Harvey, David Roberts, and Peter Owens, I examine harmonic progressions in the first song of the cycle that suggest a systematic approach to post-tonal voice leading.
In these instances, register and harmonic rhythm are the only features of the musical surface that recall traditional phrase structure; individual sets seem sufficiently different from one another to discourage any kind of consistent voice-leading, but, on the other hand, their juxtaposition suggests a gradation of change, a certain order within a relatively structuredócontrolledótransformation.
Following this intuition, and since the larger sets share subsets such as [0,1,2,5] and [0,1,2], the harmonic occurrences are hence rethought as the expression of simultaneities arising from the combination of smaller subsets.
