title: Reapplying Phenomena of Meaning
question: how can the chosen four phenomena of meaning be reapplied in composition?
The paper explores an artistic process of observing and analyzing complexities of meaning in works of different media, and reapplying these complexities in musical composition. Films, stage works, novels and paintings are analyzed for their relevant properties in a series of brief case studies. The problems of abstraction and reapplication are examined, and the ways in which I have done the latter are explained.
