Abstract

The design of this paper is one of exploration--an exploration of various qualities of motion in the orchestral song cycle by Hector Berlioz, Nuits d'Ete. To undertake such a project I have begun with two assumptions regarding music, time, and movement. The first is that music occurs in time--it is a temporal art. The second is that experienced time moves.

To clarify my own understanding I have divided temporal movement into two separate realms of consciousness: the contemplative or psychological, and the physical.
