L'analyse ondulatoire : une approche morphologique de l’analyse musicale

Abstract : The undulatory analysis method is an analytical tool for the study of music works from a morphological standpoint. The thesis proposes a concept of music based solely on the sound as a fundamental music entity. The music is defined as: an undulatory process produced and perceived in time. The music work being performed, that is to say, become an acoustic signal, is considered in its entirety as a single very complex sound, in which its temporal, frequency and timbral structures changes constantly over time. This signal, the piece of music, is studied and transcribed through the analysis, as an undulatory trajectory, therefore, viewable as a morphological overall object. The origin of this undulatory trajectory is perfectly observable in the sonogram or spectrogram produced by the piece being analyzed. Within the undulatory analysis, the undulation concept, which is an inseparable notion of sound phenomenon, is the paradigm – par excellence – of the undulatory musical thinking. Musical morphology is now in close relationship with the concept of undulation. All the important parameters of the musical work are transcribed into wave structures, then, they are analyzed and subsequently coupled to the models of the proposed piece of music. At this stage, we have an adequate representation of the morphology, the precise form of the piece analyzed. The thesis is articulated in two modules that conform the conceptual structure of the undulatory music analysis method, namely, a theory and an analysis method. The results of applying the undulatory analysis method are presented.
