Abstract (summary)

Out of Boxes is a musical composition that features additional artistic expressions resulting from a marriage between modern auxiliary art forms such as dance and multimedia image projection for the purpose of enhancing and supporting the music itself. The work incorporates an extensive collection of musical building materials compiled from the various periods of musical history. The musical composition, Out of Boxes , was inspired by a figurative journey of self-discovery. The combined effect of the music, literary quotes, and visual expressions of dance along with the multimedia imagery chronicles a transition from the feeling of being figuratively imprisoned, to being figuratively set free. The musical composition, Out of Boxes, features a new method of composing called the ‘Centerpoint Technique.’ Finally, this thesis includes a prose analysis of the musical composition, and a summary of the ‘Centerpoint Technique.’
