AbstractTrinity is an original musical composition for chamber ensemble and electroacoustic music. It is approximately 32 minutes in duration. Trinity is inspired by the basic triune principles of traditional Christianity: three persons, one body. The piece combines modern acoustic and electronic compositional techniques--especially serialism--with formal structures that are inspired by the basic triune of Christianity, the Holy Trinity. The references for this supportive document concentrate on twentieth-century composers who composed music influenced by their religiosity and spirituality. Their music and religious philosophies consequently inspired the composition of Trinity. All of the electroacoustic sounds in Trinity are from pre-recorded instrument sounds that are digitally manipulated in various software. Through the use of existing compositional methods--especially serialism--and current electroacoustic music techniques, Trinity is part of a long tradition of religion and spirituality in music.
