David Orvek is a second-year MA student in Music Theory and a Graduate Teaching Associate for the first-year music theory and aural training courses at The Ohio State University. His research interests deal primarily with tonality and harmony in late-Romantic and early-twentieth-century musics. He recently presented a paper on closural features in the music of Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg at the Indiana University Graduate Theory Association Symposium. The topic of his master’s thesis is a generalized system of voice-leading transformations based on Richard Cohn’s “SUM classes.”
