Abstract

Black Aggie: A Tale of American Folklore italic is a musical work written for wind symphony and synthesizer. The piece has the possibility to be performed in two different ways. It can either be performed by a live wind symphony or can be played as an electronic realization with media. The piece was inspired by the legend of Black Aggie - a peculiar grave statue with a series of fantastical stories surrounding her existence. The media presentation is to be played along with the live or synthesized performance. The media consists of photographs and footage of key elements in Black Aggie's legend. All of the media was manipulated with italic Photoshop italic and transferred to the video editing software italic iMovie italic. The realization of the music was created using italic Finale, Logic Pro, italic and italic East West Symphonic Gold italic. The music and the media together create a vivid depiction of Black Aggie's legend.
