Collaborative approaches to contemporary organ music

In Graphics, extended techniques, timbral diversity: collaborative approaches to contemporary organ music, Danel Matheison and Thomas Metcalf explore the composer-performer relationship, examining the relationships between a composer's intention and a performer's agency.  The article is based around Mathieson's performance of the premiere of Metcalf's recent composition DISSOLUTION, which is contexualised with comments on two works using graphic notation: Ligeti's Volumina and Xenakis's Gmeeorgh.
