Classical + Underground

Merging technique and technology for experimentation in music


The music conservatory is inspired from James Blake’s song “Retrograde”. Blake is an artist that blends his classical music training with base, reverb and looping of the electronic underground. This project began with a sound analysis, breaking it down into stacked classical and underground sound. Moments of penetration into the opposite sound space were diagrammed. This analysis influenced the development of architectural form and the penetration of different sound space.
