Issues covered at supervisory meeting: Discussed the upcoming Viva Voce and what would be required. Discussed text as pure sound divorced from literal meaning (non-lexical vocables). Mentioned the traditions of word setting e.g. Purcell ‘Dido and Aeneas’ and Schubert Lieder. Looked at my use of harmony and it’s “Jazziness” and some harmonic choices. Also we talked over my trying to use pitch sets and limiting pitches and how symmetrical scales might be used.
