Mixed Signals: An Intersection of Technology, Music, and Design is my ongoing senior thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design. This project is worked in collaboration with Mixmag, advised by Hammett Nurosi at RISD, and will be completed in May 2019. This page will be updated regularly with progress of this project, so be sure to check back in!
Mixed Signals explores electronic music culture as a platform that questions social norms and encourages experimentation with other levels of reality. Through research at events in person, interviewing those involved, and browsing virtual communities, this projects aims to decontextualize music events as a collaboration of light, sound, and movement. I have begun my researching process that includes gathering photos, sound samples, printed objects, and have conducted interviews with DJs, audiences, and event promoters in Los Angeles, New York City, and Tel Aviv. In January, I will be traveling to Berlin, Paris, and London to continue this research to build my degree project.
