Composition methods related to chemistry and biology

University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Högskolan för scen och musik

Abstract: This master thesis presents three different methods of composing music with some processes, concepts and models from the fields of chemistry and biology, in which I have researched theoretically and practically in order to obtain and to generate the musical knowledge for this work. Historically, one of the ways of obtaining and creating musical material and musical networks has been the connection of music with other fields, such as literature, sculpture or maths. For this reason, this thesis presents the way of obtaining material from two connected fields: chemistry and biology. As a composer, I have explored each composition method through the analysis of different pieces, its relation with music elements and the way of composing music with the connections between biology or chemistry and music.
