Department The University of British Columbia Vancouver, Canada DE-6 (2/88) ABSTRACT - MUSIC COMPOSITIONS BY JOCELYN MORLOCK The thesis is a concert of six musical compositions presented in the recital hall of the UBC School of Music on April 28, 1996. FANFARE FOR THE WINTER SOLSTICE This is a short (2-3 minute) fanfare for six trumpets. The entire piece is based on the opening four-note figure, and is quite contrapuntal and antiphonal in nature. Harmonically, it is the most tonal and consonant piece on the recital. VOLANTIS, THE FLYING FISH! This twelve-minute quintet explores the range of rhythmic and harmonic simplicity and complexity that can be found within the same piece. LIMBO The four movements of this piece for clarinet and piano are closely related in terms of harmony, but contain quite diverse rhythmic motives. The piano and clarinet lines are imitative of one another, especially in the first three movements. RATATO UILLE The name of this short electroacoustic piece comes from the pervasive use of vegetable names for sound material. darkness of prairie sky This six-minute piece for solo bassoon is, like the Fanfare, quite tonal and consonant. It exploits the entire range of the bassoon and shows off the technique of the player. THREE SONGS ON POEMS BY OCTAVIO PAZ These songs for high voice, oboe, and percussion combine traditional notation techniques with proportional notation. The goal of this is to create a somewhat improvisatory sound without undue confusion for the performers. ii TABLE OF CONTENTS Abstract ii Table of Contents iii Recital Program 1 Fanfare for the Winter Solstice 3 Volantis, the Flying Fish! 11 Limbo 33 darkness of prairie sky 59 Three Songs on Poems by Octavio Paz 63 iii THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA SCHOOL OF MUSIC Recital Hall Sunday, April 28, 1996 8:00 p.m. Master's Recital* JOCELYNMORLOCK, Composer Fanfare for the Winter Solstice (1995) David Mills, Eartha-Ann Hanson, Jon Beatty, Glen Bolger, Pam Holland, Andrea Canniff, trumpets David Byrne, conductor Volantis (The Flying Fish!)

You have been more lovely than I can shake a stick at. Also thaks to Stephen Chatman, Keith Hamel, and Eugene Wilson for their wisdom and advice, to the gourmet musicians responsible for the reception (Chenoa Anderson and Christopher Kovarik), to the many people who have offered help with set changes, organization, and warding off panic, and to my family, who have come all the way from Manitoba to see this spectacular (?) event! Translations of Paz song texts Madrugada Rapidas manos Mas retiran una a una las vendas de la sombra Abro los ojos todavia estoy vivo en el centro de una herida todavia fresca Este Lado Hay luz. No la tocamos ni la vemos. En sus vacias claridades reposa lo que vemos y tocamos. Yo veo con las yemas de mis dedos lo que palpan mis ojos: sombras, mundo. Con las sombras dibujo mundos, disipo mundos con las sombras. Oigo latir la luz del otro lado. Garabato Con un trozo de carbon con mi gis roto y mi lapiz rojo dibujar tu nombre el nombre de tu boca el signo de tus piernas en la pared de nadie En la puerta prohibida grabar el nombre de tu cuerpo hasta que la hoja de mi navaja sangre y la piedra grite y el muro respire como un pecho Dawn Cold rapid hands draw back one by one the bandages of dark I open my eyes still I am living at the center of a wound still fresh This Side There is light. We neither see nor touch it. In its empty clarities rests what we touch and see. I see with my fingertips what my eyes touch: shadows, the world. With shadows I draw worlds, I scatter worlds with shadows. I hear the light beat on the other side. Scrawl With a piece of charcoal with my broken crayon and my red pencil scrawling your name the name of your mouth the sign of your legs on nobody's walls On the forbidden door engraving the name of your body till the blade of my knife bleeds and the stone screams and the wall breathes like a chest 2 Fanfare for the Winter Solstice 3 7 i f r . f f Hfrr T ^ f 1* ^ -0- . . .
