Unsuk Chin's 12 Klavieretüden (1995-2003) give a microscopic view of her compositional style. Chin (b. 1961) is a Korean-born composer who has developed a worldwide reputation since winning the Grawemeyer Award in 2004. Etude Nos. 1 and 6 from 12 Klavieretüden display her meticulous organization of musical elements including rhythm, dynamics, and pitches. These two etudes also show an aspect of the diversity in her writing style in that they apply techniques of and simulate the sound of electroacoustic music as a means of creating unique sonorities from the piano. This treatise provides background information on Chin's Etudes through a biographical sketch of the composer and general overview of her compositional style in Chapter 1 and an introduction to electroacoustic music in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 examines the two etudes in depth and explains how Chin achieves both unity and variety through specific organizing principles.
