So this being the first week of my experiment I needed to start broad in terms of the typography that I showed Devon. Devon is a music therapy major as well as musician, so I figured she would be a great person to test my experiment on. She does a lot of improv based things with her patients. Hopefully she will learn something just as I am learning during this process. Each week I hope to come up with a new set of rules or compositions for her to play to. Each time narrowing down the variables. For now I want to keep using the piano as the instrument and once I feel that she is picking up on the type (which hopefully she will) I want to try other instruments.
The video above is a moment from the first time we experimented. I created a set of slides with varying words and typography. I let her control the timing of the slides. She played as long as she saw fit and then was able to change the slide. (sorry for the video shakiness)
