This may seem EXTREMELY futile but it’s been driving me insane. Here are two printscreens and I have to choose a take for a video project but I don’t know which one! Please help me decide? Left or Right?
Come To|Hypnic Jerk is a piece that focuses on perception and consciousness. Technically speaking a “hypnic jerk” is defined as involuntary twitch which occurs just as a person is beginning to fall asleep, often causing them to awaken suddenly for a moment. In other words, it is that feeling that you have fallen into your bed after you had previously thought you had fully become asleep. In the Spring of 2017, I began to experience this phenomenon during the day when I was fully awake. A sudden shock of oversensitive awareness would inexplicably rush to me. This caused me to create a musical narrative where individual instruments snap in and out of time with each other, disorient themselves, then settle with their own trajectory.

The recording of my wind ensemble piece Edgedancer is online, and you should listen to it. Particularly if you’re a Stormlight Archive/general Cosmere fan (note the title), but also if you’re not, because the Dr. Parker and the Peabody Wind Ensemble gave it an excellent performance.

I'm fortunate enough to go to a performing and creative arts magnet school, so our entire afternoon is arts- we have a symphony orchestra, string, wind, sax ensembles, jazz bands, music theory and history, composition, and also a new music ensemble which I'm a part of and I adore. And we also have departments for theater, vocal, visual arts, literary arts, technical theater and dance. Of course, a lot of people take it for granted but it's great. There's still hope for arts education.
JEALOUS. I still find it a terrible shame that the only schools that provide a good budget to the arts are arts schools. There’s a reason you don’t see sports schools. Because every school is a sports school.
