My name is Moriah Seaman. I am a senior graduating in 2011 with a Digital Media major, emphasis in Audio Recording, and a minor in Music.
I grew up in McPherson, Kansas, spending a lot of time at the small college in town, Central Christian College. My father was a professor of music at this school, and many of his music students would finish a two-year degree and continue their studies of music at Greenville College. Music became my passion as I grew older, and GC's audio recording facilities influenced me greatly in my decision to study at Greenville.
I was stretched as a musician as my skills were refined and developed, but the broad range of studies in the Digital Media program proved to be an immensely beneficial and unexpected blessing. I never anticipated falling in love with areas outside of my original passion of Audio Recording. My studies of photography, video, graphic design, and art have sharpened me into a flexible and well-rounded journeyman of many different creative outlets.
It's difficult for me to decide which creative outlet is my preferred medium. I love all of the areas that I've been able to work in so far, and there is no particular medium that can be better utilized for creative works. This reflects one of the critical lessons to be learned when working with the Digital Media and Art professors here at GC: practical skills and functions of any particular medium are important, but the underlying conceptual facets of a creative work are the most crucial to understand when envisioning a project from start to finish.
In other words, I'm learning to focus on effectively communicating my creative ideas and not getting lost in trifles of complicated software tutorials. Mastering the conceptual comes first, and the practical skills required to translate into completed works of art will inevitably follow.
