dc.description.abstractMy background in music and visual art has led to an exploration of combined disciplines. Throughout the past three years of graduate study at The University of Texas at Austin, my research has focused on the visual representation of music using light and sound. This area of study has touched upon a wide range of historical developments, from ancient Greek philosophy to contemporary experimental film. Through my research, I have examined the ways in which music-visualization has been influenced by shifting social and philosophical views. In turn, my own artistic practice has come to include the production of music-visualization devices. I'm interested in both the history of the light show as a cultural phenomenon, and in the development of new approaches to musical performance incorporating the union of light and sound. The following report discusses two major projects that I have worked on at UT, reflecting on the influences behind them, and their potential for growth beyond graduate school.en
