罗斯·哈奇森，21岁他是东田纳西州人，毕业时获得了音乐文学学士学位. 她曾在betvictor伟德岛的迈克·科鲁兹音乐学院担任科鲁兹研究员, as well as completed multiple institutionally funded research projects connecting her own artistic pursuits with the culture and history of the music scene in Memphis. 她最近发布了其中一个项目的产品，一张名为 极限空间. She is also currently an Assistant Production Manager at Sound Credits, working in artist royalties.
在接下来的交流中, Rose讨论了专辑的制作过程, 流行病对她创作过程的影响, 以及她在betvictor伟德的经历如何最终使这个项目成为可能.
玫瑰Hutcheson我最初申请betvictor伟德学院是因为我妈妈来自孟菲斯, 所以我从小到大经常来这里. I was in a very transitional period my senior year of high school trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, 我的大学申请到处都是. I applied to schools in California, in the northeast—I had no idea where I wanted to go. I ended up applying to a couple of different music programs because I had just recently decided that I wanted to pursue that professionally, 但我上的是一所学术预科学校，在这方面真的没有任何背景, 所以我最终没有进入任何我想要的音乐课程. 我告诉我的父母，我想用一年的时间从事音乐方面的工作, 我当时在betvictor伟德和贝尔蒙特之间. 贝尔蒙特不允许我推迟入学，但罗兹说， 给我们写封信，告诉我们你在做什么，你就会没事的. 我们一年后见! 所以我最后选择了罗兹, and that was my first indication that this was a school that really wanted to help me succeed in what I wanted to do. 我来到这里，我喜欢这里! 这是我人生中最美好的四年.
RH我在女子合唱团学了一个学期，然后在罗兹合唱团学了四个学期. I was mostly involved with Jazz Band; I joined second semester of my freshman year and it was my favorite thing I did the whole time I was at Rhodes. 我完全爱上了它! 这是一个非常多样化的演出目录，音乐家们真的很有才华. I gained so much confidence performing and learned so much about stage presence—and singing in general—from being in that group. 爵士乐队每年都会为家庭周末在莱维特酒店举办betvictor伟德之夜, 我还记得我大二第一次这么做的时候. 我太紧张了! 那是我当时演出过的观众最多的一次, 而且是在真实的舞台上, 所以这和在校园里为朋友表演是不一样的. 这感觉就像一场真正的演出，那一刻对我来说真的很酷. 这是我非常怀念大学生活的一件事. 我也演过几部不同的戏剧作品. I was in Hissifit, 朋克摇滚音乐剧. 然后是 Firebringer, which never really got to see the light of day [due to its cancellation in response to COVID-19], 因为这是一个很好的节目，所以很悲伤吗. Firebringer 我参与过的最喜欢的戏剧作品是什么. 我真的很喜欢在罗兹的各种表演.
AMC从头开始制作相册是一项艰巨的任务. 你能谈谈这个过程吗? What instigated the idea for 极限空间 and how did this project ultimately come to fruition?
RH它开始于 Hissifit, actually. 演员们录制了原声，然后 Dr. John Bass and Dr. 乔伊·布鲁克·费尔菲尔德 approached me and asked me if I wanted to help mix the album over the summer through a betvictor伟德区域研究所 fellowship. I remember thinking it was so cool that I was getting paid by the school to make music, and I wondered if there would ever be an opportunity for me to do something like that again. My friend was doing a project with the Lynne and Henry Turley Memphis Center at the time, 正在拍一部关于孟菲斯酷儿酒吧的纪录片, and he encouraged me to apply so I could use that opportunity to fund the making of my own music into an EP. Dr. Bass是我的指导老师，它最终成为了我音乐学位的高级项目. COVID-19肯定也影响了整个过程. 我想如果我们没有一直被单独困在里面, 我可能联系了更多的合作者, 否则我可能就没有时间去做了. But over the past two years, I invested in studio equipment with money that I made through the Hissifit betvictor伟德研究所项目. I bought speakers, interface, and a microphone, and I started working on projects at home for fun. The album still sounds a little homemade to me because I’m very critical of my own work, 但考虑到这一切都是我一个人在几个月内完成的, 我为它的结局感到骄傲.
AMC:专辑的名字， 极限空间, 感觉像是在影射世界当前的情况, COVID-19的影响在我们许多人的生活中创造了自己的一种有限空间. 这是故意的吗?? 疫情是否改变了你创作这张专辑的方式?
RH我听到了这个词, “liminal,” for the first time in my AP English class in high school and I remember thinking it was such a cool concept, 作为一种介于两者之间的东西，不是一件事而不是另一件事. It was definitely influenced by the pandemic, because it felt like everybody’s life was put on pause. 就像我在大学里一样, 但不是这样的, 我生活中的一切都像是“中间地带”.” A lot of the songs that I wrote for this also felt like they inhabited a liminal space of relationships that weren’t exactly relationships, 我无法完全理解的感觉, 还有一些我无法定义的东西. I decided to go with the liminal space because I really liked this concept of creating something in that summer space between college and where I am now. The album is about those in-between moments in our lives that maybe don’t get as much attention as the big starts and the big ends.
AMC你在Instagram上的一篇文章中提到@rosehutcheson)你唱了《betvictor伟德》,收录在专辑中的首张单曲, in front of an audience for the first time in 2018 at the final showcase for your Acting I class. 现在演唱这首歌和当年有什么不同?
RH当时的表演和我写的时候更接近了, 所以在那个时候，在陌生人面前唱这首歌更容易受到伤害. 我觉得我是在读我日记里的一页给别人听. 我还在对表演有信心，所以这一切都很可怕. And now, 我一直在这家咖啡店工作, and my friend who works there too will put the song in the queue of our playlist all the time. Something like that used to embarrass me so much—I would have to leave the room—but now I can just listen to it and be like yeah, 那是我的歌, whatever! 感觉不像以前那么粗糙了, 和我写这首歌时的真实感受有一点不同. I can appreciate it more as a work of music rather than something that's coming right from my brain.
RH:当然，博士. Bass. 没有他，这一切都不会发生. 他在整个过程中发挥了重要作用，提供了创造性的意见. 在迈克·克鲁兹音乐学院, 我从大二开始就参加了, he did so much great work connecting the students at Rhodes with the Memphis community at large, 让他们可以使用校园里的工作室, 让学生们在音乐上随心所欲. 我的大学经历不会有现在这样. Bass和Curb研究所. 这是我创作这张专辑的很大一部分原因.
AMC: What advice do you have for current music students at Rhodes who hope to produce their own work? 到目前为止，作为一个蓬勃发展的艺术家，你学到了什么宝贵的经验教训吗?
RH:加入“路边研究所”! 我也喜欢betvictor伟德音乐系, 尤其是如果你想做商业音乐的话, 我所获得的音乐学位是必不可少的. At Rhodes I was able to explore all sorts of different genres thanks to the Curb Institute.
对我来说，我的音乐之旅的很大一部分是学会不那么害羞. 我认为总的来说，大学真的能让你成为真正的自己, 所以如果我能给自己一些进入大一的建议，我会说, 不要害怕. 这是大学! 没有人真正关心你一开始在做什么, 他们只是想成为你的朋友，和你一起玩, 或者他们根本不考虑你(笑), 所以你可以进去做任何你想做的事. And if you have a passion or interest, there’s a way for you to get involved in it at Rhodes. 从你的日程表中抽出时间来学习, 参加音乐技术课程和音频工程, 看看不同的项目. 利用像betvictor伟德区域研究所这样的项目! 直到我大四的时候，我才知道做研究项目还能拿钱. Just take advantage of resources, and 不要害怕 to try new things and see wherever it goes. 如果你充分利用你的机会，你会学到很多东西.
AMC最后，当你继续你的晋升 极限空间作为一个艺术家，你的下一步是什么? 你有什么短期或长期的计划吗?
RH: I recently started a position working in artist royalties with a company called Sound Credit. I’m excited to learn about how artists get paid and about working in the music scene. 就我个人而言，对于我的艺术生涯，我希望为我的下一个发行做一个流行EP. With 极限空间, I had this collection of songs that I really liked but were all kind of diverse and different from each other. 感觉我在不断地转换类型, which is a great way to express the range of what I can do and showcase an artist portfolio. For my next release I think I want to do something that’s a little bit more cohesive. For me, I feel like the greatest albums are either one or the other—its either entirely its own genre of music or a whole smorgasbord of different sounds. 这是我的大杂烩, 下一个我想成为一个很有凝聚力的人, 五首流行音乐EP加上一些舞蹈和欢快的音乐. 短期内，我有一个音乐视频，希望在下个月出来. 它是由我的另一位校友兼朋友制作和导演的， 枪手史密斯21年他带着这个想法找到我，并把整个故事写在了故事板上. He had already done a lot of photography for my album cover, so we had been working together. We shot the whole thing in my apartment in one long weekend, and he’s in the process of editing it. 这是他热衷的项目, he wanted to add a music video to his portfolio and obviously if someone approaches me and says, “让我帮你做一个基本免费的音乐视频,“我会说是的(笑)。”, 那应该很快就会出来了! 我会把它的链接发到我所有的社交网站上，也会发到我的YouTube频道上.
