Title: Literary harmonics in fantasia for double stops.

Abstract: Like music, literature has the capability to invoke human emotion through constructs of patterns and themes in which audiences are able to understand and empathise with. Like music, literature can be all things to all men. It invokes emotions through the creation of meaning by the individual reader; each responding to the imagery and narrative what is presented to him at a personal level. Like "a great dynamic sun in the center of a solar system which sends out its rays and inspiration in every direction" (Stokowski 319), both artistic forms strive towards ‘resonance’ -- the tapping into the common human consciousness in a bid to move the individual towards the act of reflection and catharsis. My work is concerned with exploring the possible synergies between musical structures (and its associated devices) and the literary form; and how such synergies can establish and/or support points of ‘resonance’.
