Instrumentals was a semester-length experiment while working towards my MFA at The Rhode Island School of Design. For eight weeks, I committed to letting function follow form. Titled Instrumentals in reference to instrumental music and the wordless song, the aim was to focus on expressive form as content; the music without the lyrics. I created daily compositions based on little but my imagination and a loose prompt, all under the guidance of Keetra Dixon. Some were quick, others laborious. Collected here are some of the highlights from that two-month trial.
