The Noise: The Creation of a Symphonic Novel
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis describes how the artistic work “The Noise” came to fruition, and the emergence of the term “symphonic-fiction novel” “The Noise” is a symphonic-fiction novel, which is at heart a novel written as an E-book. It has musical tracks imbedded in the book itself that have differing connections to the words and the story of the book. In “The Noise” I’ve written music for a vast array of ensembles, ranging from solo piano to the full orchestraIn this thesis I explore what happens when I combine my abilities within literature with my skills in musical composition. I will also discuss similar projects as this one, both on their own and in relation to “The Noise”. I will briefly discuss the finding that “The Noise” is original since it is not based on synchronization as the other projects before it. This is a thesis in composition and is therefore firmly based on the musical part of the symphonic-fiction novel, yet I will also talk about the written part of the book.Overall, I feel that the project has successfully achieved the goals specified in the objective.
