dc.description.abstract For my senior project in drawing, I want to record the creative process of being in a band and making music. I will create a working band with myself playing guitar and writing most of the music. I will also have a drummer, bassist, keyboardist, and another guitar player. The band will practice, have performances and ultimately make a recording. This entire process will be documented through sketches, journals, recordings, and photos. From the very beginning stages, the writing of songs will be recorded by writing down chords, notes, and lyrics. Practices and brainstorming sessions will be recorded on tape. By comparing the early stages of songs with the final recordings, I hope to greater understand my own creative process. Events, feelings, conflicts, ideas, and goals of the band will be written down in a journal. This will show how the band evolves over time.Another part of the documentation will include more formal drawings and paintings. This visual art will be created as a response to the music being written or experiences gained by being in the band. Portraits of the band members, videos of performances, photographs and flyers from the shows will add to the visual explanation of the creative process.The goal is to attract an audience for the band through a visual presentation. Hopefully,someone who would not normally like the music of a hard rock band will be intriguedinto listening by the visual component. I am also interested to learn how the drawingswill affect the music and vice versa. By keeping careful and thorough records, I hope tounderstand and share my creative process as well as the final product.
