ACHF Arts Access
I will spend 60 hours of exploration and study with artistic collaborators to deepen the crucial relationship of music in my puppetry work. I will keep a log of the exploratory workshops to record reflections and insights. I will video-record some workshops and the culminating event to observe the process and product. I will invite peers into the process to solicit feedback on the work. 2: I will spend 40 hours studying piano, guitar, and music theory. I will be more able to communicate better with artistic collaborators about the musical language of my puppet performances.
I spent 60-80 hours of exploration and study with artistic collaborators to deepen the relationship of music in my puppetry work. This happened through rehearsing, conversing, choreographing, creating music in preparation for the culminating event. My artistic collaborators and I created an event called the Peace Day Lantern Ceremony as the focus for the exploration of my work's relationship with music and puppetry. My main musical collaborator, Martin Dosh, had seen previous lantern ceremonies that I had created in Powderhorn Park and wanted to use this event to focus our study of music in my work. I video and photo documented the process and product of this event. I also invited artistic peers to the final event and solicited feedback specifically about the relationship of the musical language of the work. 2: I spent 40 hours studying piano, guitar and music theory (i.e. rhythms, notes, scales) to better communicate with musical collaborators in my puppetry work. I learned musical terms and technical language to attain better communication about the development of my work. I verbally evaluated the differences in this collaboration with musical collaborators to note the development of my understanding of musical language.
