Semetsky defines the Deleuze-Guattarian diagram as ‘a bridge, a diagonal connection that . . . connects planes of expression and content material resulting in the emergence of recent types’ and during which ‘fixed and inflexible signifieds fall down to the construction of latest meanings’ (Semetsky 2010, p. 243). For the composer, pre-material elements can derive from lots of milieus together with track, literature, portray, cinema, philosophy, the sciences, politics etc. those will not be pre-established, in most cases authorized or sincerely understood molar different types, yet particularly molecular, pre-material forces that break out from their earlier placements to re-form in new heterogeneous assemblages. those forces meet and input into family at a A Deleuzian semiotics of song 147 molecular point, under that of representational types and in this kind of method that they formulate a thorough diagram composed of music’s so much molecular houses and elements. those variety from the rather molar personality of person chords, pitch aggregates, musical gestures, unmarried pitches, intervals, timbres and assaults to the formerly unimaginable sub-components of sound and pitch, all of which might be attached, disconnected and transposed in a number of methods as a brand new diagram is traced with its features reorganized. which means because the forces comprising the recent diagram are rearranged, new issues of expression are produced besides new compositional strategies, fabrics and micro-materials and the inventive redeployment of already existent fabrics, in what Criton phrases ‘the overlapping of the semiotic and the cloth’ (Criton 2011b, p. 5). As Criton notes The sound point itself is a compound of variables (frequencies, intensities, durations), showing evolutionary and interactive behaviours. The sound aspect can thenceforth be thought of a decomposable and recomposable compound that may continuously be uncovered to differences. Its imprint is the expression of a kingdom of variables which are conserved . . . or that modulate (modification of basically sure variables, i. e. vibrato) or which are remodeled into one other kingdom of kin . . . . The molecularization of sound fabric allows entry to a number of continua, to a line of limitless edition of sound kinfolk (Criton 2011a, p. 247). during this view, ‘sound is an primarily heterogeneous truth, a multiplicity made of contingencies and determinations, of magnitudes, of dimensions which elevate and reduce in keeping with the development that's in procedure’ (Ibid. , p. 239). For Criton, this ‘acoustic multiplicity . . . integrates the entire elements that form the sound and the potentiality of the spatio-temporal variables that might be laid out in a selected sound event’. the search for a musical content material that's inseparable from sonic expression effects, between different issues, within the identity of bundles of non-sonorous forces or becomings, together with what Deleuze and Guattari check with because the becoming-animal, becoming-woman, becoming-child and becoming-machine.
