Area of proposed thesis
Noise in Helmut Lachenmann’s musique concrète instrumentale
My thesis looks at the function of noise within Helmut Lachenmann’s musique concrète instrumentale, with a particular focus on possible intertextual relationships between Dal niente (Intérieur III) and Accanto. Through this, I aim to push an understanding of noise up to the point at which it has no opposite, suggesting that this unusual capacity of noise can provide a useful conceptual framework to understand other non-binary systems.
