In this thesis, I discuss the inspiration and creation of my Master’s Thesis Signal Flow piece, “I am a glorious swimmer,” a live performance piece that is created in Max, which involves video and voice. The first section is a child-like song about a Koi fish swimming in her pond. In the second section, we are transported into an artificial ocean made from the Koi’s imagination. I take a deep dive into how each sound is created and the importance of the Koi fish to the piece and to myself, analyzing the piece in the context of my own imagination and cultural context. We end in reflection of where I stand today as an artist and my hopes of how I plan to grow.
