SIPS #1

Well, in one respect today was almost entirely unproductive. In another respect it was super awesome!

I started out trying to start research on my rather vague idea for a project and I guess I made a little progress. I learned that there are, in fact, studies about how music and personality are related. I know! Isn’t that amazing! Someone studied that before! I can’t read at least half of them without paying for them, but I’m sure that they are very deep and thoughtful. The one that I did actually get to read talked about how your music preference is related to your empathy. That is about all that I got out of it so far…

But the thing that I actually learned today was that I should do a different project! I just wasn’t passionate enough for just reading some articles about brains, so now I am going to try something else.

My plan is to combine my passions and write, direct, film, edit, and play and compose music for a short movie. We will see how it goes. 🙂

SIPS Pitch

One of my passions is music. I love everything about it. I love playing it, listening to it, and even composing it. I want to learn the affects that music can have on you, and more importantly, how it does it. Music is something that has a huge impact in my life and the lives of so many people, and I want to be able to understand why it does what it does. Maybe I could even create something that makes someone feel a certain way.

I have a few questions that I want to use to guide my work.

  1. What affects can music have on people’s thoughts and feelings?
  2. What about a song produces these affects?
  3. Can songs help someone be more productive?

A couple of experts that I could turn to for help on my project are…

  • Toby Fox: The creator and music designer for UNDERTALE, a game that is known for it’s amazing soundtrack.
  • Mr. Beck: The orchestra teacher. He knows a lot about music, right?
  • Nathan Young: My brother who once did a science fair project on how music affects productivity.
  • Nick Phoenix: The composer for one of my favorite instrumental groups.
