This project aims to support the continuation and conclusion of the following researches: 1. Completion of the project of analysis of musical material Africa; 2. Article writing "Additivity and rhythmic structure "lise" and "strié" in West African repertoire; 3. Drafting of the article "Aspects of the harmonic Choros No.4 by Heitor Villa-Lobos and the modernist language"The first item refers to the review, extension and publication of two already completed projects, which counted with the support of FAPESP. The publication already has the approval of EDUSP, but still needs to be reviewed with respect to some conceptual aspects and graphical presentation. The first of these aspects are already being completed. The second item refers to development in the form of article of two issues raised in assessing the corpus discussed in the preceding item. It intends to present to the scientific community issues concerning the organization of additive rhythmic, particularly discussing the trends of organization "lise" and "strié" in the African repertoire, two concepts developped by Pierre Boulez in his "Penser la musique aujour'hui". Finally, the third item refers to the ongoing research on the relationship between the language of Villa-Lobos, on the one hand, and the harmony of Debussy and Stravinsky on the other. The article will bring a detailed analysis of Choros No.4 under the theoretical perspective employed in the assessment of European modernist repertoire of the early twentieth century. (AU)
