Over the last few days, the Creative Writing students have started to contemplate the notion of reverse-engineering soundtracks. What does that mean? Well, rather than finding music to fit a preexisting story, the experiment calls for music to shape the writing at hand! The writers then reflect upon their work, analyzing the ways in which the music has proven influential.
