This dissertation consists of five self-contained compositions that are parts of two ongoing projects; selections from a cantata for TBarB soloists, large chorus, chamber orchestra, and percussion ensemble; and three pieces from a projected cycle for soprano, flute, and string trio. These works use a mosaic technique to explore relationships between vocal phoneme and instrumental technique and between language and meaning
Words to Beowulf adapted by the composer from Seamus Heaney's translation; also printed as text preceding score on p. 6-30. Words to Tesserae/Tesseract use poem by the composer, both as text and as the source of additional phonemes used by the singer
