Rough Draft - Final

This is my kind of structure, working chronologically through a day at rehearsal. I'm aiming to expand and clarify, as well as do another night of recording.

For Zak and Kyle: Senior Thesis Work

I am working on an immersive installation that incorporates typography, sound and objects. The installation focuses on the grieving process, specifically communication between someone who is experiencing grief and someone who is not. Here is part of the audio that will be playing at my site.

Planetarium Draft 5

For Zak and Kyle- Boil (Final Project) Draft 2

This week, I rewrote my poem, trying to make it so that is has a stronger sense of a specific place.
 I also experimented with new melodies for the clips of singing that are to accompany the reading.
The pieces starts off describing a morning scene, and then transitions into a night scene.
I am wondering if these two parts are too separate, and if they might be better as separate, shorter pieces?
I also wonder if the piece would benefit from some kind of soft rhythmic instrumental sound that could consistently be heard behind the reading and singing.
Looking forward to any kind of feedback!

This is so so rough. I'm interviewing Deshaun on tuesday about music & this is just a sad attempt at a mashup of his 5 favorite songs to sing. Things will certainly start to come together when we can actually record!
