Observing the street musicians and audience
And this makes the architects through the creativity they have to produce different forms of facilities. As a result, architecture and several types of art are completely interconnected. In addition, music which is a field in arts has some impacts in the architecture. In respect of a brief look at the relationship of the architecture and the music, my research discussion will be based on how the rhythms of music influences social interactions in the urban streets which will follow the aim and the structure of the investigation as a whole (Koch 2013 p 20). According to the first architectural, architects should aim in serving the people. Human beings are able to understand or perceive the world which is surrounding them by the use of the senses, audio option which is the vital one and it is commonly ignored.
According to Schafer 1993, p. 163, he puts across that whether we are conscious or unconscious we do perceive those who are surrounding us and we are influenced by the sound even when we are in deep sleep. In regard to the architecture, Kourosh said that “when the space has no sound it feels like it has no life”(Mueke and Zach 2011, p. Literature review Owing to the nature of my research project proposal, it is a multidisciplinary one; this literature review will apply the peer journals, conferences proceedings, articles and books which are relating to the study. Being exposed to music can have a positive impact in our future and shape our emotions and improve our intelligence. In addition to that, music can help in strengthening the bonds of connections between people and also act as a bridge between these connections.
When analyzing the rhythm of a building, Wang discovered that the rhythms of a building is identical to music and also attributed an art a chief representation of ancient China as music, this is because the art contained emotions which were innumerable (Endesor 2016 p 13). People of different social classes meets in the urban spaces, due to the social network information the urban space provides people with opportunities where they can share their thoughts and experiences in life. Moreover, the urban spaces are more than just giving people a space so that they can be able to share their experiences and thoughts (Endesor 2011 p. When crowds beings to build up they usually form a social interaction which is temporary in that space.
Generally, the audience are organized in a certain form e. g. circular shape; this creates a shoulder to shoulder interaction across the space. As the people pass by some as asked if they want to take part, most of them accept but some refuse. The point which I will be making clear is the space created by rhythms used by the musicians in the streets (Simpson 2011 p. The visual analysis will analyze the artistic materials in order to come up and represent knowledge. This will include art materials such as photographs, drawings, sculptures and paintings in the urban streets. This will be in line with what I mentioned when I was introducing the research that architecture has close relation with art field.
The visual analysis which I will apply in the research is formal description or analysis alone. My perspective Methods In keeping with the chosen methodology, data will be collected through various methods which will help me in coming up with the correct results. These methods will include observation method, focus groups, and reflective practice. The focus groups will be important tool in sampling so that the data which will be collected it will be relating to the research project. The focus group discussions will undertake 30 minutes which will consist of 5-7 audiences who will be willing to participate after the performance. The discussions will be conducted in a way that they will be dependant on one another. I will analyze all the information which will be provided in the methods which I used when collecting data.
My data will compose of the data collected in relation to how rhythm of music creates space in the street. I will apply a formal analysis of the texts and also contents analysis. In my analysis, I will also apply quantitative and also quantitative data analysis method. Ethics It is important to seek for ethical approval when conducting a postgraduate research apart from that research which is based on book work. The limitation of this method is that when people discover that they are being observed they may change which will have an impact in the evaluation process.
