I made this EP as part of my senior thesis at Hampshire College. My goal for this music was to explore and blend sounds of different settings in order to create new environments. The second half of my thesis was a music analysis paper on the music in Hayao Miyazaki's animated films. If you're associated with Hampshire College and have an email account you can read the paper here: hdl.handle.net/10009/966
If you don't have an email account and are still interested in reading the paper send me an email and I can attach the pdf to my response.
