Daniel Elder: Into the Wordless

Daniel Elder

Into the Wordless


Into the Wordless compares two poems by Walt Whitman, both from his landmark publication Leaves of Grass. These two disparate texts fit together in a hauntingly symbiotic way, and in this setting they are compared musically in two distinct styles that represent a dual-reality experienced by the narrator. As the poems are interwoven section by section, the plagal nature of Gliding Over All joins seamlessly with the pa n-diatonicpatterns in A Clear Midnight, in particular their shared weight of A-flat major – historically theorized as the “key of the grave” (Christian Schubart’s Ideen zu einer Ästhetik der Tonkunst, 1806) – albeit in different harmonic contexts.
