Texas Tech University hosted the inaugural Lubbock Lights: Celebrating the Musical Heritage of the South Plains on April 9. The event focused on the creative process behind how some Lubbock musicians create their iconic music.

Terri Hendrix, a singer-songwriter from San Marcos, Texas, said despite her lack of roots in West Texas, some of her greatest musical influences have deep roots in the region.

“You can’t be involved in the Texas music scene and not be influenced by the music of the South Plains,” Hendrix said.

When William Westney, Texas Tech music professor and artist-in-residence, met Cynthia Grund, a fellow academic teaching philosophy at the University of Southern Denmark in 2009, a seed was planted that grew into research that's combining philosophy, classical music, and the movements of the human body.
