"From the planet of Geoff" is a piece which combines elements of reggae music with rock and roll and contains a section in the style of a broadway musical. It is scored for a mid-sized ensemble (14 instruments and 3 singers) and lasts for about 9 minutes. "Gweetar Myoozak" is piece scored for solo guitar which explores a less tonal environment than most of the other pieces in this thesis. It is organized into three contrasting movements and lasts for about 7 minutes. "Shine" is scored for a medium ensemble (16 intstruments) and an electronic tape. This song, because of the electronics, is included as track 1 on the CD which accompanies this thesis. "Shine" lasts for approximately 6 minutes. "Enough" is the only completely electronic piece in this thesis and the music is comprised entirely of of sounds heard in every day life which are organized into various rhythms. The piece is organized into four major sections which represent nature, industry, technology, and war and lasts for a total of 15 minutes. "Thank You" is a song which was written for my grandmother who helped to put me through the University of Oregon. She was an amazing lady and this song is for her. It is scored for two instruments and voice and lasts for about 8 minutes. "Anthem for a Time of Strange" is a song in a popular style which is scored for an electronic tape and voice. The lyrics describe the composer's current outlook on life and the world situation. It lasts for about 5 minutes.  Table of Contents  Abstract Tabic of Contents  ••'  Acknowledgements  '  v  From The Planet of Geof f  1  Gweetar Myoozak  43  Shine  50  Enough  72  Thank You  7  Anthem For A Time Of Strange  92  -iii-  3  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Dr. Stephen Chatman for his open mindedness, his direct and sometimes humbling honesty, and for being the best composition teacher I have had the opportunity to work with in my career as a composition student. I would also like to thank Dr. Keith Hamel for introducing me to electronic music which I am now madly in love with. Also, I owe a big thank you to Hitomi, who has faithfully put up with all of my craziness during these two years of graduate school and who has helped me to finally start growing up a little bit. Finally, I would like to thank my family for supporting my decision to study music instead of something more "realistic." In particular, I owe the biggest thanks to Mom for supporting me, not only financially, but in many, many other ways as well. Thank you all....  -iv-  Froto  the  P i a n e *  Wooden  Geoffrey  Fall, 2000  -l-  of  Geoff  From the Planet Qf Geoff For: Clarinet, E-f lat A l t o Saxophone, Horn.Trumpet, 2 T e n o r Trombones, Tuba, Drum S e t E l e c t r i c (Suitar, Soprano, A l t o , Tenor, 2 Violins, Viola, Cello, Bass (Double Bass or E l e c t r i c )  lyrics: I am dreaming o f a coconut t r e e , Down by t h e sea, W h e r e I sit j u s t a sippin' my long island iced tea. Suddenly it comes to me, W h e r e I need t o be, Home, where my body is sleeping without me. I tell myself I'm s o r r y but my spirit, it needs to fly. M y body's too heavy so I guess I'm going to have t o leave it behind. I hope it doesn't sound like I want to die, all this talk o f flying. I t ' s j u s t t h a t sometimes, I dream t h a t I'm really alive. I am floating on this could o f mine, O n Hawaiian time, W h e r e t h e water's so clear it mirrors my mind. A n d so what do I find? R e f l e c t e d in this dream o f mine, A picture o f myself j u s t as clear as this sky. I t may sound c r a z y but sometimes I cannot tell if I'm awake or asleep. I t ' s cloudy and hazy and I wonder if my life is really what it seems. I t seems t h a t my dreams a r e j u s t too real, or could it be, T h a t in reality, I'm j u s t a part o f your dream? Could we be dreaming now? W e all are sleeping, universally, Awake in this dream, Asleep in our beds, so comfortably. A n d so what does this mean? W e can continue to sleep, O r we can wake ourselves up and have a cup o f c o f f e e . Although I may be dreaming, it feels j u s t as real as can be. A n d if I wake up, t h e n what in t h e world would happen t o reality? I t seems t h a t t h e s e dreams a r e j u s t too real and so what should I f e e l ? Well I j u s t ask myself, Could I be dreaming now?  © All lyrics and music copyright Geoffrey M.

Even though you're a world and a half away. You were a nightmare, even f o r t h e prince o f Lebanon, N o t to mention the r e s t o f us. You were harder than an iron And your breath was always on f i r e , But your words could be so cold, And your ways, they seemed so old. So nothing that you did ever made all that much sense to me. So you seemed like an easy t a r g e t to hit. Someone in another world who would put up with all my shit. But when you slapped me across t h e face that's where reality hit. Maybe, when I'm older I might turn out to be j u s t like you. And what a scary thought t h a t is. But it's not quite as frightening as if I stayed exactly t h e same. I was quite a nightmare f o r you, too. I stole your cigarettes, And I put them in my pocket with some o t h e r regrets. And a f t e r all the trouble, I went sifting through t h e rubble. I had never understood j u s t what you were trying to say. Now it's my turn to say something to you. I missed my chance and now I am way way overdue. For all those years o f crazy shit t h a t we went through. Now that your f i r e has burned itself to t h e ground. And your smoke is starting to clear. I have an image, though there's still a couple clouds in my eyes. I can almost see your real shape. You were smart enough f o r a scholarship, But you couldn't even pay f o r t h e airplane ticket, So you saved that dream and you gave it to me, And it's finally become a reality. And now I can finally say t h a t today, I see you dancing in a d i f f e r e n t way. I t seems that colors have replaced those shades o f grey. Your sun may have s e t already and I could still rain today, But it's ok, it's ok, it's ok. © Copyright Geoffrey M. Wooden, 2002  -74-  -75-  Vce.

Now you may think that sounds bizarre, but think about where you are, This place aint exactly full of reason. Maybe our train is o f f the rails, maybe our ship has set its sail, And there's no one on board. Now, the light is growing dim and I suggest you learn to swim, Cause this boat won't float anymore. You see our horse is going away. Our collective brains have let go of the reigns. This may sound completely insane. But look at how things have changed, Yes it's getting quite strange. I f your canoe is full of holes and your paddle is broken, Maybe you should let it go. But whatever it is you choose, Just put on a smile and do it in style and you'll almost never loose. I think our moped's out of fuel and it's hard to fine a mule, Who'll take you through the snow. So if the chain falls off your bike, you may just have to hike, To get to where you want to go. And so, onward I go, trodding through the snow in my Versace high heels. And though I may be rather slow, I know that this is faster, Than a car with no wheels. Don't let your beer run out of bubbles or your soda go flat. Then you'll really have some trouble, but it's not quite that bad. Just keep walking your way, And if people stare at your purple hair then at least you'll be able to say, I do it my own way. And so, onward I go, still pushing through the snow in my Versace Couture, And even though it gets so cold, I won't do what I'm told. Because I'm still immature. Now I no longer ride on the train, I carry my own brain, And though it may insane, I think that being normal is just a game, but I don't know how to play. And so I'm happily strange.
