Dr. Rachel Hall
The project is due Friday, December 10th, in class.
You should be prepared to make a short presentation of the project--show
the class your project and discuss the mathematical and artistic methods
you have used to make the project. If you made a sona design plus
a story, tell the story, and if you made a drum composition, play it for
the class. Projects should be the product of about 4 or 5 hours work.
They will be graded on creativity, complexity, and use of concepts we discussed
in class or in the readings. Projects should also be original--that
is, not a reproduction or variation of traditional artwork or of artwork
by another artist.
