Music for the theater as motivic "worldbuilding", a term taken from the high-fantasy literary genre. Analysis of a work not as a small motivic cell blooming outward, but as a setting designed to maximize the impact of a smaller idea's given journey. A process of musical storytelling that is simultaneously abstract and programmatic. www.JakeLandau.com
