 This idea was my degree project for my senior year at MassArt. It is essentially the visual residue that came from the intensive research I did about both stress and music therapy. The basic concepts in each that caught my attention and formed this project were the difference between stress and the body's stress response as well as how song pitch and tempo can evoke the feeling of calmness in the mind.
