|It’s a Start|
Well, here I am…. Drowning in technology and failing at using it. The difference between this semester and previous ones is that I’m actually enjoying my work and projects. I definitely enjoyed projects before, but now, even through the frustration there is a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment in what I’m producing.
I look forward to having more to show after this season. I am in the throws of film scoring, and video game scoring. Both are requiring me to up my game in using technology. My meager studio setup is much more functional than before, which helps, but there is the never ending list of things to buy to add to it. It’s easy to get carried away with my wish list.
There is a fine balance between working on the technology and working on my compositional skill. Sometimes they go together, and other times they are at serious odds.
Classes are riveting, and at least once a week I pinch myself.
Last week I found myself hanging out with George S. Clinton, film composer, in my seminar class. He was so incredibly nice, helpful, and insightful. I learned an immense amount from him in a short hour class.

I’m going back to writing music now…
