blarg (not kevin).

i'm not sure what i did differently this year with the show, but writing battery parts has been much more difficult than i would have thought.

I have a vague theory that it has to do with me doing an original show vs. an arrangement of an already well known tune, and i didn't do such a good job of thinking about percussion integration. I've focused so much on the music for the winds that putting in battery parts that are "independent" as opposed to coloristic melodic enhancement seem out of place.

Maybe it'll be better once i lay in some of the stuff i've already done. I have stuff written up to letter E, and in reality that's about half of the music since there's not going to be any percussion music during the first part of the ballad.

the plan right now is to write battery music up to letter F, maybe G, maybe J, and to do the pit music up to letter G, maybe up to letter M.

hopefully that whole rocess will only take me until 7am, if not earlier. Then i can take a break, fill out that OFAM thing i've been procrastinating on, and then either write more battery music or start brainstorming about how i want to end the show.
