seven and a half weeks separate where my thesis is now and where it will be when i present it on april 14th. i am feeling pretty confident yet, as always, challenged by the criticism i received during today’s review. basically, i need to get more uncomfortable. i guess given the brevity of this thesis process, i’ve wanted to only take risks that i knew i could tackle so that i could have a building to present by the final deadline. the main things i am going to focus on now are

a) REverberation.

b) think visually as well as aurally

c) keep working with spectrums (+opposites) – loud/quiet; permanent/transient (duration of a monument, duration of a music note); reverberation(soft/dead vs. hard/live)

these opposites will inform the relationship between the individual and collective spaces. nested individual spaces? amplifying music rehearsal space.
