Debussy’s incorporation of distinctive scales, rhythmic patterns, harmonies, and colors commonly associated with the exotic also follows Locke’s idea of submerged exoticism. La soirée dans Grenade allows both submerged exoticism and transcultural composing to intersect. Although Debussy tries to imitate authentic Spanish music, the music does not reflect Spanish tradition except for the imitation of the strumming guitar. The Spanish composer Manuel de Falla would also echo this concept by saying, "There is not even one measure of this music borrowed from the Spanish folklore, and yet the entire composition in its most minute details, conveys admirably…

Both works of later-Romantic Gothic, these novels deal with the social impact of their protagonists’ ‘selfhood’, or ‘inner life’, rather than how the outward sublime influences the ‘inner self’.

    The proposed approach was implemented, tested and validated for SVPWM and DPWM2 techniques, including the over-modulation region. The proposed switching frequency variation strategy was able to reduce switching losses up to 20% over the conventional constant switching frequency SVPWM and DPWM2 techniques.
