Please Note:

In 2009, this section of my site, along with a number of others, was extended, developed, polished, and folded into my latest project, Emergent Music And Visual Music: Inside Studies. The new project includes a book, a set of four DVDs, soon to be released CDs, and, eventually to be released, Part 4 featuring the writings and compositions of other artists in field. For more details on the project, go to its Introduction.



Compositional Thinking includes Pellegrino's examples, essays, and recommendations that go well beyond the practice of compositional materialism and traditional music notation into the areas of real-time composition, systems design, and cultivating and living in a compositional attitude. The information in this section of the site is accessible through either of two lists, a Titles List and a Dated Annotated List (latest posts first). Via the description links of the sections called Ron Pellegrino's Music Samples and Ron Pellegrino's Video Excerpts, there's considerable information about the thought processes that led to the compositions.
