performing visual elements (an unexpected translation of value) auditorily (nightmare or daydream). i was listening so hard to hear it in the manipulation of sound that i missed the symbolic sound execution of value.

Lecture #1 with Bill

  1. Lecture 1 (1/21) assignment and reading. Due Friday, January 28 beginning of class.
  2.  TBA in class 1/21.

And we finished with the little moody element of color in the auditory range

Hey! Wait a minute that last one wasn’t sound! Now that was music! We’ve mixed in a vocal artist with our visuals! YES! MIXing it up is good.

Well and then their was our first day of class
student nightmare or fantasy!
