Folie à deux : a musical composition for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and vibraphone with electroacoustic music and live audio processing Hannesson, Mark Joel

Abstract

Folie à deux is a musical composition for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and vibraphone with electroacoustic music and live audio processing. It explores the idea of musical influence through the metaphor of shared delusion. This dissertation is made up of four main sections. The first will look at the background to the piece, the historical and personal influences that led to its composition. The second section will discuss those aspects of the piece that are somewhat unique as well as an examination of how it does not correspond to standard practices. Next, a detailed examination of the steps taken to bring the piece to fruition will be explored. Finally, some concluding remarks will be made about the piece and the future creative directions that may be followed in its wake.
