Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Spend 160 dedicated hours to composing new music for robotic instruments. Devote an additional 40 hours to robotic instrument upgrades, maintenance, and creation, and another 40 hours to video documentation. I will log my time and keep a project journal to monitor and manage my efforts along the way. Forthcoming tour and studio dates will serve as strong motivators; reflection upon these afterward will provide further opportunity for evaluation.
