I further agree that permission for extensive copying of this thesis for scholarly purposes may be granted by the head of my department or by his or her representatives. It is understood that copying or publication of this thesis for financial gain shall not be allowed without my written permission.  Department of The University of British Columbia Vancouver, Canada  Date  ABSTRACT  Contained in this document are reproductions of musical scores which represent a large part of my compositional output while in residency at the University of British Columbia from 1995-1998. The pieces "Decorations of Time" and "Slow" are written for solo performer with accompaniment, while the pieces "Millennium" and "Untitled" are written for large chamber ensemble and wind ensemble respectively. The remaining four submitted pieces, "...from the shadows of adimly lit street", "Neruda's Lunch", "Tongue of the Ocean", and "Scene Loop", are purely electroacoustic in nature and therefore do not have a printed musical score. These pieces can be found only on the accompanying cassette tape.  TABLE OF CONTENTS  Abstract  ii  MUSICAL WORKS  Decorations of Time  1  Slow  16  Millennium  18  Untitled  51  Millennium by Patrick Keeler (1998) Flute Oboe Bb Clarinet Horn Harp Percussion  (one performer)  vibraphone tam-tam tambourine suspended cymbal tom-toms (2)  Violin Viola Violoncello Double Bass Piano (offstage) Soprano (offstage)  Duration — ca. 8'00  19 confronts the fears, be they legitimate or unfounded, that humanity seems to harbour about the rapid approach of the 21st century. A prophecy made by Michel de Nostredame (1503 - 1566) seems to indicate that our fears are certainly not without justification: Millennium  The year of the great seventh number will appear the time of the games of slaughter Not far from the age of the great millennium when the dead will come out of their graves  Although Nostradamus regarded this prophecy as an announcement of the apocalypse (occurring in July, 1999), it may be best interpreted in modern times as a warning to humanity, one that cautions us to respect ourselves and our planet before it is too late. Formally, Millennium is divided into three parts; the central statement of Nostradamus' prophecy is preceded and followed by two distinctly different musical ideas. The beginning of the piece divides the ensemble into three groups (woodwinds, strings, harp & percussion) in a texturally active and harmonically rich setting. The section following the prophecy deals with a single-line melody which is employed through to the end of the piece. percussion  M i l l e n n i u m  Score in "C  20 Patrick Keeler (1998)  J. = 76 flute  short —  p  *  —  •  short  oboe short  clarinet short  horn  P  harp  percussion  vibraphone  J. = 76 violin  viola  violoncello  double bass  soprano (offstage)  ffV\ 0  piano (offstage)  © 1998 Patrick Keeler  poco  - Millennium -  -Millennium -  - Millennium -  - Millennium -  vln.  d.b.  vln.  d.b.  -Millennium -  - Millennium  - Millennium -  - Millennium -  28  -Millennium -  29 58  with forward motion ion  J- = 76  with forward motion  J. =  da.  hrp.  vib.  •  l.v.  p  (no ped.)  76  S i  vln.  mm an*  f  3  p 3  d.b.  64 vln.
