The Art of Motif- Transformations

 

 


The Goddess of Fate of the Motif

 

 


The Motherly Role of the Musical Sequence

The Lively Formation
of the Melody

The Manifold Shape of the Melody

The With its related forces (its deviations), the motif moves through the world of the sequences in the shape of the melody. It continuously transforms itself and appears in many forms by assuming the characteristics of related motifs. Thus, it fills the realm of the sequence with ever new life – just like a child who, at home, continually disguises itself and playfully runs through house and garden.

Even if the listener recognizes the motif and its destiny, the nature of the sequence, which in a motherly way guides the motif, is more difficult to perceive. But when he directs his attention from the motif to the world of the sequence, the motif appears to him in the form of the melody by expressing, one after the other, the features of related traits of character.

In this way, the motif, while dancing through the worlds of the sequences, is always inspired by the presently ruling sequence to further enliven individual unfoldment.

On a higher level of musical knowledge, the sequence is guided and strenghtened by the harmony; hence, it can rejuvenate the motifs – resulting in the lively structuring of the melody. In the melody, the motif describes its individual life-path; therefore sometimes this or that quality is dominating – sometimes one aspect, sometimes another aspect of the motif.
