STUDY ON LOGIC PRINCIPLES APPLIED TO MUSICAL COMPOSITION
Harry L. Crowl
The present study intends to establish a coherent basis for the composition of one or more pieces of music from the same material. The starting point for this study is the aim of creating an individual musical language as a composer of serious music. Our attempt to develop such a language has been based in the Mediterranean and American musical cultures as well as the twelve-tone developments by Schoenberg and Krenek, which were introduced in Latin America by the Argentinean composer Juan Carlos Paz and by the German composer H. J. Koellreutter.
