Assignment 2 : Piano Studio inspired by Field Recording / Listening

Due Date: TUESDAY, JAN 25, 11:00 AM

Write a short, 1 minute piano study based on an observed soundscape. Use the same process you did for Assignment 1 to find an interesting space to listen to and study, and perhaps make a field recording. Listen to the recording closely, or to the space in real-time, and analyze carefully what you are hearing. Are there compositional ideas there? Write them down, then begin experimenting with ways to sound these ideas out on the piano.

It is recommended that you work at the piano, and allow yourself to experiment. Turn in a written composition using standard notation, and include a realization (i.e. recording) of the piece if you wish.
