Influences: When I grow up I want to be Lin-Manuel Miranda or Bobby Lopez - also the Beatles (yeah, everyone says that), Barenaked Ladies, Domestic Problems, Black Keys, Jeff Brown, Dave Matthews, my family, everything, - the answer is "42"
Alright. 2018... Yeah... It is time to finish a musical.
I am forcing myself to focus on a story idea I have and to get the songs into place (mostly). There'll be explanations as I go and I hope to make some really good music.
Showtunes - here we come.
What's likely going to happen this year is the academic pieces I am writing for my Film Music Degree will flow into FAWM, with a splash of songwriting here and there. Look for Piano and solo instrument pieces abound.
Thanks, Clingman! Looking forward to hearing your stuff too, bub.
In all reality, though, teach a few things to your kids, assuming they're old enough. Nothing keeps you practicing like teaching somebody else and drilling the basics over and over.
Yes! Send me some goodness and I can record for you here!
Looking forward to hearing those Quartal/Quintal harmonies and Modal Mediants. 😀
Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
