Joy - a composition for three or more voices or instruments
Davidson, Robert A. (1998) Joy - a composition for three or more voices or instruments. (Unpublished)
A musical study of time stretching. The final four bars of J.S. Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" are subjected to a process of time stretching. In filmmaking, a common technique used to slow down a section of film is to duplicate each frame several times. Joy uses a similar approach, but with overlapping "frames" of three quavers: the first three quavers are repeated, followed by repetitions of quavers two to four, and so on, moving through the material a quaver at a time. The result is a seamless expansion of the time frame of the original source.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
