We had rain the other day. That’s been quite rare in Oklahoma during this drought. I grabbed my camera and got some good macro shots.
Other life stuff filled my week, so I didn’t do any on the composing project. But, it’s still there, on my piano and in my head, waiting to be finished. I have the bulk of the project done. Song structure, melody, chord progression, tempo(s), etc. I am working on the instrumental turnarounds and jazzy fills. So, I’d say I’m 80% there. Probably one more working session on it, and I’ll be “finished” enough to submit it to the project manager. Who knows if he will accept this or send it back to the drawing board? In a way, this is soooo cool–to be recognized for my abilities and be asked to compose. And, it’s such a learning experience: in my own musical works, I have the final say-so. In this, the work has to satisfy someone else. It’s interesting to be on this side of things. Of course, if this draft of the composition doesn’t get accepted, I won’t be disappointed. I’ll just write something else. But, it’ll be sooo interesting to see how this all goes.
Have a lovely week.
