The purpose of this research is to apply the analytical technique of A Generative Theory of Tonal Music, by Fred Lerdahl and Ray Jackendoff, to Olivier Messiaen's L'Ascension Suite Movement I (1934) for Organ. Application of this technique will test the working hypothesis of "Do these out-of-Phase gestures work efficiently in a conventional meter setting?"
