The influence of “scale-free” networks in the 1 sonata

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article will discuss the influence of scale-free networks on my 1 sonata (Sélection, 5th Dutilleux International Composition Compétition, 2003) for piano. An important feature of scale-free networks is that they are regulated by a small number of important nodes/hubs that are connected to many other sites. Following a power law distribution, research has found that a majority of nodes have only a few links, while a small minority of nodes have an enormous amount of links, known as hubs. After a brief introduction, I will present four concepts and their applications in the 1 Sonata.
