I’m glad my very rough notes are helpful, Kendra! I’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of the non-Second-Viennese-School-focused analytical serialist literature; I decided to start by searching for analyses of Dallapiccola’s work. Jacqueline Ravensburgen wrote an interesting analytical thesis on Dallapiccola for the University of Ottawa in 2012 (I have a PDF if you want it) that I thought might yield some interesting inroads into this kind of analysis, and of course her lit review would be a good place to start also. All of that is a long way of saying that there’s probably some good lit out there and unfortunately I just don’t know about it yet. I had to shelve this analysis for now to focus on other projects, but I do want to get more acquainted with how people have analyzed freer and/or more minimalist serial compositions. Also, very happy and interested to read your conference paper, whether before or after you present it!
