From Voi(rex) to Apocalypsis: an Essay on the Interaction between Composition and Analysis
The musical project Voi(rex)-Apocalypsis by Philippe Leroux is an integral part of a theoretical reflection on the relationship between composition and musical analysis. This article attempts, by putting the composer's musical experience in action, to look into what music analysis can bring to a creator at work: What musical elements does the analysis concentrate on? What are the objectives and perspectives in terms of composition? In light of this inspection, this article is dedicated to the description of the relationship between Voi(rex) and Apocalypsis, demonstrating how the latter is created from the corpus that made up the former.
