During my time at University of North Texas I have had to negotiate many steep
learning curves. These would not have been as approachable without the invaluable
encouragement and guidance from my professors. In particular, I thank David Stout who
has generously taught me about time-based visual aesthetics and intermedia art, and
has opened up many avenues for me in my professional development, Martin Back for
all his help and guidance in intermedia and video art that goes far beyond clinical
approach, Joseph Klein for his advice as a composer and conductor in navigating the
many obstacles I faced in developing my compositions, Kirsten Broberg for her endless
assurances and advice as I struggled with Helios, and Jon Nelson and Panaiotis
Kokoras for introducing me to acousmatic music.
Thanks also to Tim Larson for helping me understand helioseismology. Thanks
goes to Ron Dilulio, Preston Starr, and Ryan Bennett for opening the doors to the
Astronomy Department and the Sky Theater Planetarium to me. Much appreciation
goes to J. Richard Gott for letting me use his beautiful graphic.
Thanks also to family and friends that provided immeasurable support in a variety
of ways to the pursuit of this degree: Kevin Walczyk, Diane Baxter, Beverly Morrison,
Jeff Mince, Monica and Theresa, Mimi Kearns, Sherri Drummond, Kayre Axe, Greg
Sherman, Ginger McKay, Julia DeMarines, Jane Rigler, Janet Feder, Fred Chalenor,
Henry Franzoni, Diane Kintrea, Kelly Ricks, Stephanie Gooding, Marco Nardelli, Mike
Johnson, Mark Harris, Farrell Lowe, Dave Willey, Peter Erskine, Bruce Odland, Mark
Fuller, Jeremiah Moore, Sammi Wade, Elaine Urie, Heather Zadra, and Maury Sankey.
