Percussion

I have chosen Percussion to be my "rouge element" for this project. Percussion has been a passion of mine since junior high. I attended school for my first degree on a music scholarship based on my abilities to play timpani. A passion that has sat on the back burner while I have been working on my Architecture degrees. I have been trying for years to incorporate my two passions: architecture and percussion and through this studio I will attempt this.

There are many similarities within the language of Architecture and percussion, but in this project I am focusing on how to relate the Human senses to the fundamentals of percussion: rhythm, texture and physics.

These diagrams show the primary and secondary relationships of Percussion to the Human senses as I have previously done with the Public Space diagrams.
