Obviously, there will be a lot of editing from now until Halloween when it'll be due, but for now I'm pretty pleased with what I've come up with. There are a few sections that err on the rumbling side of things, but most of it is pretty tranquil, how I pictured it as I began writing it a couple weeks ago.
Every so often, my sister asks me for help with her novel she's trying to get published. I won't say anything now, but it's a pretty awesome book! I'm thinking of writing a symphonic work to submit that could be a track in the film, assuming that the book is published, turned into a movie, and I get to compose. It's mostly just me dreaming, but sometimes, it's fun to picture myself giving comments about a piece I wrote like Howard Shore did in the video form of his Lord of the Rings symphony did... Either way, I'll put all the pieces I submit for IHSA on YouTube early November, so you can look forward to those then! For now, I can just journey on....
Oh, there have been these weird times in orchestra class where I'm sitting with my violin, and Mr. Burck passes out a piece of music and I get extremely giddy and excited to try it. And one time this happened was when the sheet music looked like an old typewriter had written it with the older colored paper, and it said 'Violino I' in newspaper-worthy print. I don't know, I just got excited to play. :)
