Re: I really need some advice for Senior Project
Tell them you are going to make your own electronic music instruments that you will perform with. you are going to use common computer chips to make controllable music devices. Then go out, get the book, and start building. You won't be sorry.This is the bok where everyone that wants to build quick, unique, and playable electronic music should start. The first device is a speaker two soda can tabs, some wire, and a battery. It is called a victorian synthesizer. It gets WAY better from there.

My advice would be not to do your project on something you're really in the dark about - Your proposal may not make sense. Better to stick to something you know something about initially that you can then expand. The album idea gives you scope to do excellent work that is well researched.

Subject: I really need some advice for Senior Project
I have to turn in my highschool senior project proposal tomorrow if I want to be approved to work on it over summer which I do. It is a given that I want it to be about electronic music. But I dont know how to expand on that idea. It
has to take at least 15 hours of working on it. I was thinking about doing reasearch on different styles of electronic music and composing an album consisting of 3-4 different styles that I researched. That would definitely take 15 hours. But I also was considering researching electronic music performance. As it is quite a mysterious subject that I really struggle understanding to this day. And for the final product I would put on a performance myself. Your feedback is far more appreciated than you can imagine as this is really last minute.
