Abstract Title

Life Room

Abstract

The title of my project is “Life Room” which incorporates art and music. The music goes through a journey of my most personal feelings and memories, along with the art. Through each original song art is highlighted from beginning to end by artist Noelle and Lacy. In the middle of the performance, there will be a live painting happening while I’m singing and is to be completed by the end of the song. I have a passion for both music and abstract painting. It’s amazing what the two can create combined. I’m passionate about this project because it’s an original concept with the combination of art and music. I think it will be beautiful to create an atmosphere for people to feel at home, inclusive, and inspired. I want them to be very responsive during this performance, it’s a very interactive piece. It’s interactive because of the space itself. I want to have furniture for people to sit on that will be directly on the stage. The rest of the seating in the black box will come in at an angle to make it more intimate. Before entering the space, there will be a white photo backdrop that people can take pictures in front of. On the backdrop it will say “I Am”. My vision is to have sticky notes so people can write different things like “Beautiful,” “Talented”, “Worthy”, something encouraging. Before they walk into the room they will write something they don’t like about themselves anonymously and will take out a random one at the end of the show and rip it up to the last song. Each team member is so important to making this work because each component is just as important with art and music being one. This show is what I think the community needs, it’s healing and I believe will bring people together in a way that’s never happened before. I think this will encourage students to think outside of the box, and if they have more than one passion figuring out innovative ways to tying them together because it can be done. With contributions towards this project, I will be creating most of the music and only a few will be cover songs potentially. The artist will be creating all their pieces from scratch because it will be going along with the music. From beginning to end this process will probably go from February 1st to start getting all the material needed. I would imagine starting rehearsals mid February which could take place in music classrooms, practice rooms. I would like to use the black box for the performance space. I would need to reserve it for April 15th- 17th. The 15th and 16th will be used for set up, lighting, sound, and final dress rehearsal. On the 17th will be the final performance. I’m going to evaluate the process by having a meeting with the team once a week to track our progress, make improvements, and will have a designated recorder to write down everything. I will know how successful this project was through a short questionnaire that people will be able to fill out at the end of the show. At the end of this project, the work can go in the artists’ portfolios and websites. My music could be released, or put on my website. I think this project has the potential to be very powerful, and memorable!
