Part 3 ESSAY (Dodecaphony) Twelve Tone Technique

In the first part COMPOSER’S WORKSHOP the composer created the musical themes and six different variations. The second part OVERTURE showed, how a composer puts the different elements together and creates a piece of music.

In part 1 COMPOSER’S WORKSHOP there has been the variation dodecaphony with twelve tone technique, which did not fit into the OVERTURE. Twelve tone technique has been developed by the famous composer Arnold Schönberg. Each of the 12 notes of our tonal system may only reappear when all the other 11 notes have been used, too. Based on the contemporary variation Kees Vlak creates the third Part of THE YOUNG EXPLORER, which is called ESSAY: TWELVE TONE TECHNIQUE. It is not totally composed in the style of Arnold Schönberg, as this would break all musical structures and make the piece very complicated to perform. So Kees Vlak writes a canonical, polyphonic composition with prelude and postlude. He uses the twelve tone technique not only horizontally, but also vertically. With his ESSAY: TWELVE TONE TECHNIQUE Kees Vlak wants to build a bridge to contemporary music. For him, music is communication! ...and it is art! Like the art of a well-balanced life you should balance out tension and relaxation, depending on the temper of the composer and the musicians. Modern music is actually just like conventional music – it’s just a bit like a different language.
