Augusta Read Thomas, University Professor of Composition in the Department of Music and the College and Director of the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition, is featured with a Design Spotlight in the current issue of Great Lakes By Design Magazine. The magazine highlights the architecture, the arts, the destinations, the fashion, the products, and the people behind them throughout the Great Lakes region.
This issue's Design Spotlight on Thomas talks about Thomas's compositional process, how she connects her compositions to other creative mediums, and Thomas's lifelong musical journey.
“I think a lot about design and contrast, sort of architecturally, poetically, in terms of the natural world. I think it's fair to say composers are designers in many ways.” – Augusta Read Thomas, Great Lakes By Design Magazine
The full Design Spotlight can be found in the current issue of Great Lakes By Design Magazine: The Acoustics, Volume 6, Issue 5.
