Music for Organ and Electronics: Repertory, Notation, and Performance Practice
Burghart Rice, Heike S

2015, DMA, University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music: Organ.
A large body of works for organ and electronics has been written over the past fifty-four years. This music carries a new and unique set of challenges for both performer and composer. The elements of primary focus in many of these works relate to things such as timbre, texture, and the use of space and are not easily notated with the notational systems previously available. This work reviews the various ways composers have dealt with these challenges, particularly in their use of graphic notation. It also serves as a practical guide for the organist as a compilation of known works for organ and electronics, providing information on the physical location of the performance materials including the electronic media. Commentary on notation trends and innovations in the genre are provided, and notational systems for organ and electronics are examined at a more general level with respect to their utility in communicating performance information. Information useful to organists on the technical realization of electronic parts is also discussed.
