Developing methods of analysis for multiple-strata works
Investigations from the field of auditive perception, in particular the work of Bregman and colleagues (Auditory Scene Analysis, MIT Press, 1990) are applied to works such as
Stravinsky's Rite of Spring
Ives' Fourth Symphony
Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta
The basic concepts of this work were presented in two talks and taught in the context of senior undergraduate analysis classes several times in Portugal & Canada. They are now being organized into a book titled Sorting out the Strata.
