LP is for Sublime: bridging the gap between lyrics and poetry

Field Study Proposal

The student will explore what happens to the sense of self, body and mind when  experiencing the music of Sublime. She will pose the questions,  Who am I in relation to their lyrics, their style, their clothes, their sound, their overall identity, how do they personally affect me and/ or the culture around me?  How can I know?  This last question, How Can I Know?, Meditation can be described as a process of “cleaning the lens” of one’s own self perception, therefore,  the student will plan to use and study different meditation methods to try and answer these questions. The student will also be creating poetry and lyrics based off of the influence of the band Sublime, followed with a term paper modeled after Susan Howe’s The Midnight execpt the students’ will be in relation with Sublime. the student will also be producing a Craig Holdrege skunk cabbage style paper based strictly around The album by Sublime, 40oz to Freedom.
