Abstract

This session will discuss the compositional process for “matryoshka”, a piece composed for the Omaha Performing Arts' program entitled, “The Rite Returns” (http://www.theritereturnsomaha.org/). This festival celebrates centennial anniversary Russian composer Igor Stravinsky's famous piece with music, poetry, and dance. The resulting piece, matryoshka, is a synthesis of three things: the influence of Stravinsky, the process of recursion, and the sounds of Rock & Roll. This presentation will discuss the specific musical aspects of these influences, the process of recursion and its translation into sound.
