Two Guys in a Lunatic Asylum: A Suite
MetadataShow full item record
This work is a creative thesis which attempts to detail the thematic inspiration and historical context which were integral in composing my suite, Two Guys in a Lunatic Asylum. I have also included a comprehensive analysis of each composition in the suite. In doing so, I hope to illuminate how the thematic inspiration that I drew from the comic book The Killing joke led me to various musical choices. Additionally, I have included the complete scores to the suite as well as an audio recording. This is so musicians can look and hear for themselves and understand precisely how I chose to realize my inspiration into music.
