In earlier research we see how improvisational methods allows ‘objects’ to develop, at various scales, across the project. These contribute to the evolving ‘spatial’ ambitions of the project in a landscape and cultural context. Both these strands of thought develop in tandem, and without bias, until synthesis is reached to form compositional tapestries within the project’s evolving logic.
I now examine this ambition for synthesis in two studies within the relevant creative fields. These studies are a gutter detail for a house in Co. Carlow, Ireland and development of a short piece of recorded music. In this way I hope to test conclusions made in earlier research and make new observations about synthesis within the creative fields themselves.
