Echoes of Nature: How Music Reflects Humans’ Relationship with Nature
Throughout history, music has always been a tool used to communicate with concepts bigger than the individual. We live in an infinite universe where nature is continuously evolving in mysterious ways. The duality of nature’s fragility and fierceness, it’s miracles of creation and spontaneous destructiveness has long been an inspiration, muse, and even at times intended audience of music and the arts. The goal of my culminating experience is to explore the many ways nature influences our ideas and the way we make music. Also discussed will be several projects in which musicians have used their medium to create social change in the realm of how our society values and protects nature.
