Abstract

The purpose of this dissertation is to make observations of form in Christian Lauba's
Dream in a Bar for baritone saxophone and percussion through an analysis of pitch,
rhythmic and timbral organisation. It will be shown that Dream in a Bar is a single
movement work that is essentially through-composed and does not have any large scale
musical return, such as one would see in sonata form. Subsequently, this dissertation will
explore other relationships by which to establish the form of the work. It will consider the
large-scale functions of pitch, rhythm and timbre as organising elements.
Following an outline of concepts pertaining to twentieth century musical form within the
western art music tradition, the analysis will consider Lauba's use of pitch, rhythm and
timbre as individual delineators of form in Dream in a Bar. The conclusion and discussion
will present the findings of the analysis. This dissertation will examine the large-scale
functions of pitch, rhythm and timbre in Dream in a Bar as delineators of form, rather than
discussing specific small-scale events. The structure of a piece of music is perceived, not as
a series of discreet independent units strung together, but as a process wherein smaller
ideas function as part of a larger organisation (Cooper & Meyer,1960,2).
