Master's Theses

Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Sonata No. 1, written in 1926, is one of his most complex and lengthy works for piano.

The musical surface of the sonata was crafted by an extensive use of interval classes 1 and 5 which serve as the primary means of structuring pitch material.

Psappha By Iannis Xenakis: Developing Multiple Percussion Literacy, Owen Phillip Rockwell

Dissertations

Psappha by Iannis Xenakis was written for a solo percussionist in 1975, and since then has been performed almost exclusively by elite musicians. The work suffers from broad neglect by students and professionals alike, because the structure and notation are difficult to access. Through Psappha, Xenakis created an alternative approach to serialist and chance compositional techniques that enabled him to communicate what he believed was rhythm in its purest form.

Honors Council of Illinois Region 2015 Student Research Symposium

This study employed several distinct disciplines in mathematics to isolate, examine, and optimize the various costs involved in managing a soup kitchen. “Soup Kitchen Statistics” is a mathematical model illustrating the inverse relationship between the ambient outside temperature and the homeless population of Joliet, IL. The use of calculus revealed key relationships among vital factors, the most important of which included the daily costs of operation as a function of meal attendance dependent on outside temperature. The study produced a realistic and logical mathematical model which enables management personnel at MorningStar Mission to forecast the needs of the kitchen simply ...
