Prof. Beaudoin's Composition Featured in Kunsttexte

Orit Hilewicz, assistant professor of music theory at Indiana University, recently published an article devoted to a string quartet—The Real Thing—by Richard Beaudoin, assistant professor of music at Dartmouth. Hilewicz's article is titled "Anxiety and The Real Thing: Queer Ekphrasis, Acoustic Palimpsest, and Autistic Listening." She analyzes the quartet's design and uncovers its relationship to the painting that shares its name: Glenn Brown's "The Real Thing" (2000). Her article appears in Kunsttexte, a journal associated with the Institute for Art and Visual History at the Humboldt University in Berlin, in a volume devoted to visual music.

The full article, which includes the complete score of The Real Thing, is available here.
