Chapter 1 will introduce the genesis of this project and my main influences that lead to the fruition of this work. Chapter 2 will provide a general overview of the interdisciplinary designs of the project, while Chapter 3 will offer an in-depth analysis of these designs through a movement-by-movement analysis.analysis of these designs through a movement-by-movement analysis.
