THIS NOSTALGIC EARTH
A Master's Thesis in Sound Design
THIS NOSTALGIC EARTH
Welcome! "This Nostalgic Earth" is a 45-min sonic exploration of our nostalgia for/love of natural places, our creation-of-self within nature, and the emotional impact the earth has on us. A collage of musical composition, storytelling and environmental recordings, this piece is being presented in partial fulfillment of a Master of Fine Arts in Sound Design from the Yale School of Drama, May 2020, by Emily Duncan Wilson.
