Compositions, 2000 - 2002 by Geoffrey Michael Wooden B. Mus., The University of Oregon, 2000 A Thesis Submitted In Partial Fulfillment Of The Requirements For The Degree Of The Faculty of Graduate Studies School of Music, Composition We accept this thesis as conforming to Master of Music in " The University 6f British Colombia April, 2002 © Geoffrey Michael Wooden, 2002 In presenting this thesis in partial fulfilment of the requirements for an advanced degree at the University of British Columbia, I agree that the Library shall make it freely available for reference and study. 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 CfOril 'ZOO'Z-DE-6 (2/88) Ab$tract This thesis contains 6 musical works totalling 50 minutes of music written for various ensembles including chamber groups of various sizes, electronic music, and combinations of electronic music with live performers. "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.

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 * of Geoff Geoffrey Wooden Fall, 2000 - l -From the Planet Qf Geoff For: Clarinet, E-f lat Alto Saxophone, Horn.Trumpet, 2 Tenor Trombones, Tuba, Drum Set Electric (Suitar, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, 2 Violins, Viola, Cello, Bass (Double Bass or Electric) lyrics: I am dreaming of a coconut tree, Down by the sea, Where I sit just a sippin' my long island iced tea. Suddenly it comes to me, Where I need to be, Home, where my body is sleeping without me. I tell myself I'm sorry but my spirit, it needs to fly. My body's too heavy so I guess I'm going to have to leave it behind. I hope it doesn't sound like I want to die, all this talk of flying. It's just that sometimes, I dream that I'm really alive. I am floating on this could of mine, On Hawaiian time, Where the water's so clear it mirrors my mind. And so what do I find? Reflected in this dream of mine, A picture of myself just as clear as this sky. I t may sound crazy but sometimes I cannot tell if I'm awake or asleep. It's cloudy and hazy and I wonder if my life is really what it seems. I t seems that my dreams are just too real, or could it be, That in reality, I'm just a part of your dream? Could we be dreaming now? We all are sleeping, universally, Awake in this dream, Asleep in our beds, so comfortably. And so what does this mean? We can continue to sleep, Or we can wake ourselves up and have a cup of coffee. Although I may be dreaming, it feels just as real as can be. And if I wake up, then what in the world would happen to reality? I t seems that these dreams are just too real and so what should I feel? Well I just 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 for the prince of Lebanon, Not to mention the rest of us. You were harder than an iron And your breath was always on f ire, 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 target to hit. Someone in another world who would put up with all my shit. But when you slapped me across the face that's where reality hit. Maybe, when I'm older I might turn out to be just like you. And what a scary thought that is. But it's not quite as frightening as if I stayed exactly the same. I was quite a nightmare for you, too. I stole your cigarettes, And I put them in my pocket with some other regrets. And after all the trouble, I went sifting through the rubble. I had never understood just 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 of crazy shit that we went through. Now that your f ire has burned itself to the 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 for a scholarship, But you couldn't even pay for the 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 that today, I see you dancing in a different way. I t seems that colors have replaced those shades of grey. Your sun may have set 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. Gtr.

Now you may think that sounds bizarre, but think about where you are, This place aint exactly full of reason. Maybe our train is off 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. If 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.
