Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
Art and music;
Music and the visual arts are persistent areas of interest in my life; as a person who seeks to understand connections between and within the inner and outer worlds I designed a thesis project toward better appreciation of the relationship between music and art. This document chronicles the progression of my journey into and through an exploration of the association between music and art as well as the development of my thought and art-making regarding this subject. Along the way I encountered more questions than answers; in hope that others will continue this exploration and because questioning is an integral component of the thesis project entire I include both my significant findings and my 'unfinished business'. The investigative procedure involved listening, discussing, and creating through writing and art-making; both writing and art-making are vital ways in which I formulate understanding (though writing is often the dominant avenue) and so both methods of approach are represented here .
