five minutes is too short.

i just mapped out the first "third" of the show leading up to the ballad.

at optimum tempo, it's about 2'17".

too long. waaaay too long.

but i'm not sure what to cut.

i have to, though. I need to find a way to cut it to at *least* 2'00". ideally more like 1'30".

*thinks out loud* if i make the introductary stuff slightly faster (it's currently at 60bpm and then 120 bpm) that will probably cut about 10 seconds. If i take out the drum break, that would cut another fifteen seconds or so, but i wanted that in there to give the low brass a break since they're playing almost the entire time.

maybe i have to reconceptualize what i'm doing with the low brass anyway even if i keep the drum break in... too much of what i have written relies upon them being the glue that holds everything together, and they do need a chop break somewhere in the first two minutes of the show. Hopefully i can find a good spot to program it in.

bed time for now, though. going to trying to get up around 9am to do some more work on it, then run some errands, then maybe try to didder.
