Abstract

My research paper will address the possibility that Stravinsky’s used the Morse code as part of his rhythmic-musical language in the ballet Agon and in other orchestral works. I will also review the use of Morse code in the compositions of additional composers, as well as my own, in order to provide a compelling new research angle for future musicologists, ethnomusicologists, musicians and historians.
