A seamless tapestry of art, music and sound.

This story was written by one of the students in our group.   We then took the story to the streets and filmed it.  We recruited the female actor, male actor and elderly man, as well as one of our UT Dallas police officers.  Roxanne Minnish wrote the music to the video and Laura Ehrich helped adding the sound effects.  This was a semester long project.

Soundscapes at the Dallas Museum of Art

This project was done with a graduate class at The University of Texas at Dallas and the Dallas Museum of Art in May of 2009.  Pieces of art were selected by the museum. Students chose pieces that interested them to write a soundscape.  I was fortunate enough to do ten soundscapes.  I believe that soundscapes add to art.  Sometimes you “hear” something that you may not have “seen” looking at a painting.  Give this a try.  Go through this gallery of art with your sound muted.  Go through it again with you sound turned up.  Does it make a difference in how you view the piece?
