Post-Doc/PhD/Master Thesis
Title PhD - Macro-structural sound textures in the music of Penderecki, Ruzicka and Haas: Development of specialized musical analysis tools.
Scholarship Reference: 2020.08817.BD

This research project intends to approach, from an analytical perspective, compositions by Peter Ruzicka, Georg Friedrich Haas and Krzysztof Penderecki. The investigation will mainly focus on the textural aspects present in the works of these authors, trying to highlight the aesthetic and technical similarities between them, particularly on the use of orchestral textures.
With this investigation, we intend to typify/categorize textures and create methodological models of analysis that allow the approach of compositions whose eminently textural/“sonoristic” content is contrary to the application of methodologies developed for compositions of diverse aesthetic or technical basis (tonal, modal or dodecaphonic) and that would be consistent with the musical logic present in the compositions to be addressed, which transcend concepts such as notes, rhythm, harmony or tempo (in the most traditional sense of the terms).
