Abstract:This a study of the musical texture of two works, Contra Tempus and De Staat, by composer Louis Andriessen. After an introduction and brief biography of the composer, definitions and methods of analysis in regard to the study of musical texture are established. Following this is a look at the musical texture of Andriessen's Contra Tempus and De Staat. Special attention is given to clarity and ambiguity in Andriessen's textures and how he handles qualitative and quantitative stasis and progression of textural components. Besides an overview of the texture, there is also a detailed look at the final sections of each piece. Finally, there is a comparison of the two pieces, an overview of their salient features, and an examination of their place in his musical career.
