Week 15- Artist Convo- Troy Rounseville

For week 15 and almost the last week of fall semester I did my artist conversation on Troy Rounseville! His was really neat because I love music and played multiple instruments. His art work was instruments like a drum and guitar that played sounds through a machine. Nobody was playing it so it caught my attention because it was something very unique.
Troy explains that he does this to answer a question many have for our future. Will technology change the way we view things in the future? Instead of us playing music physically will music be as important to us when we have technology to do it? That question intrigues me because it would mean a lot of change. There would be no more music awards or concerts. If music is played only by technology what will happen to singers and other celebrities?
This piece was awesome to walk around and admire because it was all something very new to me. I thought it was a bunch of junk when I first went in there but after sitting there for a while I loved it.

Week 15- Classmate Convo- Abdulelah Algasin

For my week 15 classmate conversation I interviewed Abdulelah Algasin. Abdulelah is a 20 year old freshman here at cal state long beach. He came from Arabia and decided to come here because his brother was here first. He decided to come to school with his brother to get his degree. He wants to be a mechanical engineer so that’s what he is majoring in for now. After college he plans to move back to Arabia and get a job there where he can start a family and also be with his family.
Abdulelah has hobbies that consist of soccer, movies, and hanging out with his friends when he has free time. He mainly loves to play soccer and does that majority of his time when he isn’t busy. He has three sisters and two brothers in his family. He is also religious and is Muslim but it didn’t seem like he wanted to talk about it much. I asked him what he though about class and he just said he likes art class but it’s not something he’s completely interested in. Overall he seemed like a really cool guy.
