On repeat

Faculty Sponsor(s): Gautam Rao Butler University
Music has always been a huge part of my life. I connect with music on such a deep level and it does something to my brain psychologically that I can’t even begin to explain. There are many albums that stick out to me that I listened to on repeat throughout periods of time throughout my college career. College, much like life, can be a wide range of emotions. Never in my life have I experienced such invigorating highs and devastating lows. These albums have helped me cope with the bad times and celebrate the good, in ways that people simply couldn’t. When I look back on these specific albums, I view them as friends. Some of them saw me at times I didn’t want to show even those closest to me; While others were to be blasted loud and proud in the car along with a group of friends. Music shapes our lives and helps us realize that we are not alone. As Taylor Swift put it best, “We’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time.” In this body of work, I will explore the relationship between music and art relating to experiences throughout my college career. I will highlight the albums that shaped certain periods in my life and explore in depth the emotions and feeling the albums made me feel. The pieces will also include motifs and symbols relating to the artist and album that I feel most represent what the album is really all about.
