I’m out of sync. I can start afresh tomorrow, now that big job is handed over. Tomorrow I will be pressing the reset button in my brain.
I’ve been spread so thinly lately, I thought I was going to snap. This has been the first true, deserved day off I’ve had in a long time. Right now, I don’t owe anybody any work. Feels great. If you’ve been waiting on me for something and I keep telling you I’m too busy, I’ll be in touch shortly…
I finished it today. Oh my god, I can’t quite believe it…
The most uneventful day I’ve had in ages.
I’m in a seemingly infinite loop of bars and beats. Months of putting dots on lines.
I’m so drained by it.
I can see the finish line though.
Check this out. Talk about guilty pleasure…
This blogging every day thing hasn’t started properly yet. I’m here every day, but only for a few minutes. I’m too fucking busy.
I’m snowed under at the moment. I have been for months.
For the last six months or so I’ve been working on a new score for a musical by Malcolm Sircom. It’s been a huge task. It’s involved taking Malcolm’s original scores (on paper) and scoring it from scratch in Logic, one bar at a time. Much of Malcolm’s only exists on paper. Digital transfer by hand, one note at a time, is the only way to preserve it for the future. Problem is, what’s on paper isn’t exactly 100%. Missing pages, bum notes and other quirks have really pushed my abilities. I’ve made a lot of decisions, a lot of changes. I’ve transcribed lots by ear. It’s been the biggest test of my inner muso geek yet. WHATEVER I do next, it’ll be a piece of piss by comparison.
Tomorrow, I think I’m going to finish it. Officially, I have to, have to, have to finish it by Wednesday.
Honestly, I’ve forgotten what work was like before it. I’ve enjoyed the challenge, but right now, that last bar can’t come soon enough…
