Abstract


The aim of this methodology is to combine Arab musical characteristics with various modern compositional techniques, and to study these works, we have relied on several references and studies concerned with musical analysis and Western musical theories, which can be used in Arab maqam music that includes various analytical methodological bases. Whereas, the proposed analytical study includes four analytical aspects represented mainly in the melodic aspect, the rhythm side, the performance aspect and the harmonic analysis, which are the basic elements for analyzing the melodic themes that make up each effect, considering the structural division. In addition to the possibility of adopting it also in improvisational musical works (rhythmic or free), this study also contains a section in which we deal with the constants and variables occurring in the musical effect, depending also on the analytical elements included in this proposal.

Author Keywords: Analysis, Method, Rhythm, Melody, performance, Occidental Music, compositions.
