School Specific Essays

The human mind is a beautifully complex thing in which there lies a minimal distinction between pure genius and absolute insanity. My father is a man of the highest intellect who fell victim to event-induced psychosis; the stress of his work caused him to blur this line. I was not rushed into independence prematurely as most children of the physically or mentally disabled are—my bills were always taken care of and my mother ensured that a home cooked meal...

When I walk through Red Rock Cafe’s doors every Monday, I don’t know what to expect from that night’s open mic. This cafe is my community joined together by a common need to convey. People here exist in two spheres; one in which they communicate, and one in which they solely interpret. This inherent duality is further strengthened by the uniqueness of everyone’s demographics; these individuals have taught me to realize the depth behind the most...

Visualize a cube. Its axes represent speakers, volume, and frequency, and none of its components can overlap—this is how I learned to produce music. Fascinated by this discovery and eager to push further, I co-wrote a pitch for Cubed: an application that displays this cube on a physical interface so one can see where musical tracks overlap instead of fiddling by ear. Cubed is a manifested combination of my interests in both entrepreneurship and musical production, but it isn...

There’s no moment of mental euphoria quite like discovering the mechanics behind the deceivingly simple. This realization dawned as I produced my first song, a task I’d originally thought as facile. When my project instead became a horrible mess of clashing synthesizer and vocals, I shamefully resorted to scouring the Internet for every production tutorial I could find. There, I was advised to visualize songs as cubes: x-axis represents speaker pan, y-axis represents volume, and z-axis represents frequency;...
