Rose Hall of Birds


Rose Hall of Birds

I wrote this music for the Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s Rose Hall of Birds. Undergraduate students from The University of Texas at Dallas composed MusicScapes for the other eleven galleries. This project began in January of this year. The students have worked very hard over the past eleven months. I am so proud of them!

The new Perot Museum of Nature and Science opens December 1st: http://www.perotmuseum.org/
Visitors will be able to hear in the 12 galleries the MusicScapes created by:
Josh Casey
AJ Magallanez
Roxanne Minnish
Yaseen Benhalim

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?
