            Jay Zhang is not just at Carolina to learn, he's here to discover. "When you're in class reading a textbook, you're actually reading knowledge that is a few years behind," Zhang says. "So I wanted to get onto the very edge of research and see what's happening now." His curiosity has already generated exciting accomplishments. In 2012, he received a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship grant to pursue research on a RNA sequencing simulator. Eager to spread the word about all the research opportunities available to undergraduates, Zhang recently became an undergraduate research ambassador. __________________________________________________________ Video produced by Mary Lide Parker Music provided by Chris Zabriskie

                • Theme and Variations for Solo Violin, composed by Qingfan Jiang, '12 and performed by Erin Donegan, '11

                  "Theme and Variations" takes its title from a musical form in which a self-contained theme is repeated and changed in some way with each successful variation. Historically, many composers have favored this form. A well-known example is Mozart's "Twelve Variations on "Ah, Vous Dirai-Je, Maman," the song which we now refer to as "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." My composition, though it is a theme with five variations, may be not easily recognized as such. The sections do not necessarily have clear melodic connections with one another; each rather develops into the next one. The theme is based on a MM7th chord. The first variation adds a major 3rd above it; the second variation expands the major 3rd to a perfect 4th; the next variations continue expanding the interval into a tritone, a perfect 5th and finally a minor 6th. Also, the ending figures of the theme and each variation have the same intervallic content. The macro structure of this composition is similar to an "arch" in its symmetry: the first and last variations are expressive and romantic; the second and fourth ones are light and airy; the third (central) variation is abstract yet playful. Moreover, the sound of the solo violin varies in different ways such as legatos, staccatos, tremolos and flute-like harmonics. It is my hope that this composition will be an interesting "journey" of "Themes and Variations."
