Abstract: Cataclysm in Kailua and Guilt reflect emotional dialogue. The topic of industrial growth, progress and respect for the environment is complex. Both pieces entertain contrasting material representing conflicting opinions. In Guilt, the opinions are more transparent because of the text. My goal was to present multiple perspectives on this issue, prompting dialogue as a result. Writing two adjunct pieces that can be performed either apart or together gave me opportunity to diversify instrumentation and present alternate approaches to the related theme. In addition to presenting my ability to write works for a variety of instruments, the purpose of this master's thesis is to shed light on socio-economic issues. To highlight a variety of perspectives, I wrote two contrasting music compositions, each hoping to spark conversations about our purpose, responsibilities and relationship to the unique place that is Hawaiʻi.
