Re-sounding harmony : nature, longing, and landscape as a narrative towards transcendence
Kraft, Alexandra Xanthe G., author
"The term music as imagined today often denotes a sound-restricted entity or activity. However, different formulations of reality itself--varying metaphysical positions--vastly influence music's categorized connections to the larger human experience. Scholars of the Middle Ages and certain non-Western cultures, for example, understand music within an overarching structure and purpose of all reality. I refer to this view as sacramental, implying that one can access eternity, universality, and the greater immaterial nature of reality through engagement with the temporality, specificity, and materiality of the directly observable world. Bonaventure, a 13th Century Italian philosopher, uniquely presents a detailed process of realizing meaning--glimpses of this grand all-encompassing structure of reality--from the sensory world. His theory of contemplation--passing through the external, internal, and beyond realms--explains my compositional goal of leading listeners from the sensory world to deeper forms of understanding. By sonically evoking the external sensible world, the internal world of personal reflection, and a realm beyond the self, I aurally depict a narrative of longing--seeking and finding meaning. Through this analysis of meaning and meaning-realization, and exploration of how it relates to my artistic goals, I highlight a living and alternate metaphysical worldview and reignite the project of developing a musical metaphysics which integrates music into the purpose of human lives.

Molecular solids as sublimable adhesives
Mitchell, Haydn Thomas, author
"This thesis describes the experimental implementation and fundamental investigation of molecular solids as sublimable adhesives. The introduction provides the overview of molecular design criteria for crystal engineering and interfacial engineering of structure-property relationships within molecular solids. Chapter 1 presents the first systematic investigation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as a new class of sublimable adhesives that enable bonding of glass, metal, and plastic with shear stresses ranging from 5-50 N cm⁻². Systematic assessment shows that intermolecular interactions and structural features of the surface influence adhesion strength and mechanism of failure. Chapter 2 expands the concept of sublimable adhesives to a broader range of solid state structures, and highlights a remarkable ability of simple molecular solids (e.g., iodine and camphor) to exhibit resistance to shear. Observed shear stresses range in strength between 10-127 N cm⁻². This expanded range of shear stresses are substantially greater than commercially available double-side tape (16 ± 1 N cm⁻²). Systematic investigation of interfaces suggests that preferential orientation plays a crucial role in enabling the adhesion for molecular solids to surfaces. "
