other path other stuff.

I've hit a part of The Other Path where on paper I said, "expand" or "fill in details later" as opposed to notating it out. It's usually those moments that I compose directly into the computer, though still relying upon my inner ear to hear it (as in, i still don't use a piano or MIDI playback, at least for this kind of piece).

but i'm starting to hit a point of density - about three or four things going on, trying to lead into a "recap" of sorts, and i don't hear that part as clearly as i'd like to in my head. Granted, i'm only half paying attention to the sound, trying to focus more on the idiomaticism of the instruments... once i print out the score and put myself in the right mental space, i'll devote the energy to seeing whether or not this part still works.

I have four pieces of music running in my head right now: The Willamette show (Transformation of Color), this piece (The Other Path), my percussion ensemble piece which i want to start after I finish this one, and the wind quintet I want to write for Kim.

Too much to do, all just for me. There are worse ways to live, i suppose.
