Item description for GEOMETRIC PITCH STRUCTURE AND FORM IN DÉSERTS BY EDGARD VARÈSE by Michael David Sprowles...

Edgard Varse began composing Dserts in 1949, completing it late in 1954. Scored for 15 instruments, 5 percussionists and 2 tapes of organized sounds, Dserts comprises acoustic instrumental music and sections of electronically-organized sounds on magnetic tape meant to be inserted at 3 specific locations within the piece. The alternating sections create a continuous, seven-part form. This analysis will concentrate on the geometric constructs at work in Dserts. Initially, an analysis of the pitch structure will reveal distinct planes of sound comprised of adjacent pitches. A consideration of these geometric planes based on trichords identified early in the work provide insight into Varse's concept of "music as spatial - as bodies of intelligent sounds moving freely in space," since the elements of tension and release manifest themselves in figures as they collide (tension) and are repelled (release). Consequently, the collision and repulsion of pitch-planes together with the changing of the shapes (construction of new pitch planes) provide clear formal indicators in the instrumental portion of the work and reveal the acoustic portions of the work as a two-part structure.
