I have had a blast working with the singers for my scene. They have all been such pros and have offered exactly the kinds of feedback and collaborative energy I was hoping for going into this project. They have broken down my long-standing aversion and really helped me realize the difference between vocal writing and instrumental writing. Plus which, I got some great composition and technology lessons out of the whole writing process. Now I know how to make piano music look like piano music!! Its really kind of embarrassing how much of a revelation the piano lesson was.
Anyway, dear readers. Please do yourself a favor, come out and support BRAND SPANKING NEW MUSIC here in KC. Let's put a dent in the cultural map that people won't want to buff out.
