For my senior thesis, I wrote and directed my music video “Call Me Up,” the first video in my 6-song audiovisual album. Home Before Dawn is an album about how trauma shapes us. As an Arts in Context major, I decided to combine Music in the context of Culture & Media. I am a storyteller, and I felt the best way to combine my academic experiences at Lang were through the two mediums I am most passionate about – music and film. This fusion of crafts allowed me to collaborate with over 50 other artists. Bring this project to life was truly a group effort. The knowledge and skills I gained at Lang are what made this project possible, and I am forever grateful to have had the support of The New School’s community during the creation of my debut song and video as Sedona.
