Establishing musical brutalism. The brutalist manifest and its background
The goal of this thesis is to establish and concretize my compositional process, compositional technique and aesthetic as a unified art movement. A new definition of a genre/musical practice containing strict rules to composition and presentation of said composition, the movement is created from my own art and philosophy. I will establish this genre through thoroughly examining my own compositions and my inspirations - picking out the most important aspects and synthesizing them into a new movement. The movement will then be defined in a manifest. A manifest of rules for composition, presentation of the composition and other surrounding factors. At the end of the thesis I will look back upon the process as a whole and discuss the present and future of the manifest. What the value of the manifest is and what it represents to my future work. I chose this topic to help better understand my process and aesthetic. To finally put my thoughts together into a thesis and gain control over them. Realizing how and why I create what I create. I am choosing to start the thesis with the manifest itself and then going back to explain in detail what every commandment of the manifest represents and how they came into being.
