How To Be A Bird, Gina Cardarelli 2010 St. John Fisher College

How To Be A Bird, Gina Cardarelli

The Angle

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"The first, and hardest step, is to get rid of all your possessions, for I have never seen a bird carrying luggage, not even a small carry-on bag containing keys and lipstick and a compact. When you're a bird, none of these things will be necessary. They don't make storage garages for birds, you know, and nests aren't meant to hold much. Many people can't do this, so very few can become birds."

Observations Which Presently Degenerate Into Advice, John Pray

The Angle

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"I don't know about you, but I could probably fill an entire book (of indeterminate length) with the small observations, little anecdotes, and pearls of advice that I continually acquire as I live out my days. Instead, I'll just fill about four pages."

Joep Franssens' Harmony Of The Spheres: A Conductor's Analysis, David Andrew Hobson 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Joep Franssens' Harmony Of The Spheres: A Conductor's Analysis, David Andrew Hobson

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Harmony of the Spheres is Dutch composer Joep Franssens’ most extensive choral work to date, exhibiting a substantial possibility to enter the international repertoire as a complete work; however, several of the movements can stand alone effectively. Presented in five symmetrically conceived movements, Franssens scores the piece for SSAATTBB chorus with only the addition of full string orchestra for Movement III. The composition seeks to explore profound connections between science, music, philosophy, religion, and human relationships, intertwining excerpts from Benedict de Spinoza’s magnum opus, Ethica, allusions to the ancient idea of the music of the spheres, and European minimalism ...


"Teach Us Incessantly": Lessons And Learning In The Antebellum Gulf South, Sarah L. Hyde 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

"Teach Us Incessantly": Lessons And Learning In The Antebellum Gulf South, Sarah L. Hyde

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Before 1860 people in the Gulf South valued education and sought to extend schooling to residents across the region. Southerners learned in a variety of different settings – within their own homes taught by a family member or hired tutor, at private or parochial schools as well as in public free schools. Regardless of the venue, the ubiquity of learning in the region reveals the importance of education in Southern culture. In the 1820s and 1830s, legislators in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama sought to increase access to education by offering financial assistance to private schools in order to offset tuition costs ...


Staging Polemics: Charles Palissot, Voltaire, And The "Theatrical Event" In Eighteenth-Century France, Logan James Connors 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Staging Polemics: Charles Palissot, Voltaire, And The "Theatrical Event" In Eighteenth-Century France, Logan James Connors

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation explores the exciting world of eighteenth-century French dramatic writing, performance and criticism from the point of view of the theatrical spectator. Instead of focusing on one single genre or writer, I assemble the textual creation, performance, and criticism of certain “polemical” plays into what I term a “theatrical event.” This optic provides a holistic vision of theater and an accurate view of how drama underwent noticeable change due to playwrights’ political associations, public reactions to performance, and the emerging power of the periodical press. In sum, this project differs from previous studies by focusing on the increasing rhetorical ...


Bioluminescence, Zachary Pfeifer 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Bioluminescence, Zachary Pfeifer

LSU Master's Theses

The ability of certain animals to create natural light is called bioluminescence. This ability is found throughout the world in various biomes but is most common in the deep ocean, in layers of dark water that remain untouched by the sun’s rays. One way Bioluminescence attempts to convey light moving though the depths is by assigning bright passages to instruments that are easily heard over light accompanying textures or are sometimes featured in solos or duets. The soprano saxophone and vibraphone are the two most common examples of this. Bioluminescence is written in the tradition of an orchestral tone ...


The Alfred Cortot Study Edition Of Chopin's Etudes & How The Alexander Technique Can Facilitate Progress Towards Performance Through His Suggested Exercises, Li-Fang Wu 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

The Alfred Cortot Study Edition Of Chopin's Etudes & How The Alexander Technique Can Facilitate Progress Towards Performance Through His Suggested Exercises, Li-Fang Wu

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

The purpose of this research paper is to study how the Alexander Technique can be applied to the process of pianistic practicing, and specific technique issues. The sets of exercises I choose to focus on are from the Alfred Cortot study edition of Chopin’s Etudes, op. 10 and op. 25. The Alexander Technique is a method of releasing unnecessary muscular tension when performing every action, including motions in piano playing. Therefore, the preparatory exercises suggested by Alfred Cortot in his study editions can be more effectively executed by applying the Alexander Technique principles. This research paper is divided into ...


Other Tomorrows: Postcoloniality, Science Fiction And India, Suparno Banerjee 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Other Tomorrows: Postcoloniality, Science Fiction And India, Suparno Banerjee

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

In this dissertation I argue that science fiction as a genre intervenes in the history-oriented discourse of postcolonial Anglophone Indian literature and refocuses attention on the nation’s future—its position in global politics, its shifting religious and social values, its rapid industrialization, the clash between orthodoxy and modernity, and ultimately the dream of a multicultural nation. Anglophone Indian science fiction also indicates India’s movement away from a nation trying to negotiate the stigma of colonialism to a nation emerging as a new world power. Thus, this genre reconstructs the Indian identity not only in the domestic sphere, but ...


The Courtship Of Providence And Patriotism: The Founders' Perceptions Of American Religion, Spencer Welles McBride 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

The Courtship Of Providence And Patriotism: The Founders' Perceptions Of American Religion, Spencer Welles Mcbride

LSU Master's Theses

This thesis examines the religious language used by America’s Revolutionary leadership, particularly regarding days of fasting and prayer, the appointment of chaplains to the Continental Army, and the practice praying in the Continental Congress. These three occurrences indicate the presence of religious thought in the prosecution of the American Revolution and the establishment of an American nation. But it is an oversimplification to draw the conclusion that the founding of the United States was religious in nature simply because religious thought was involved in the process. Examining these three acts reveals the complex association of religious and political rhetoric ...


Inspire: The Confluence Of Art & Design, John Mark Lawler 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Inspire: The Confluence Of Art & Design, John Mark Lawler

LSU Master's Theses

Inspire: The Confluence of Art & Design seeks to untangle the inextricable link between graphic design and art. Graphic design has always been seen simply as an informational or sales tool; rarely is it seen as art. The work presented in this show illustrates that works created with typography can, in fact, be one and the same.


The Louisiana Sinfonietta, A New Orchestral Model, And An Original Composition, Concerto For Guitar And Symphony Orchestra, Op. 12, Ronaldo Cadeu de Oliveira 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

The Louisiana Sinfonietta, A New Orchestral Model, And An Original Composition, Concerto For Guitar And Symphony Orchestra, Op. 12, Ronaldo Cadeu De Oliveira

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation is divided into two parts. Part one is a historical paper about the chamber orchestra known as The Louisiana Sinfonietta and is divided into seven chapters. In the introduction I explain the methods used to conduct this research. Chapter one is an introduction that discusses the problem of the possible end of the long tradition of the symphony orchestra. Chapter one also investigates how the organizational model used by the Louisiana Sinfonietta may be a sign of a new orchestral model, one that may solve many of the problems that orchestras are facing today. Chapters two, three, and ...
