Hey kids. I've begun working on previously mentioned NOTLD score. I'm roughly 50% through. I'm uploading the audio to soundcloud as it's completed (linked to the left) and will upload the audio synced to the actual film when it's done.. possibly with an accompanying post here talking about some of the creative choices..
When that's done, I'm thinking I may end up doing the Voyage to the Moon experiment too.. possibly taking melodies from the Smashing Pumpkins "Tonight Tonight" and basing the score around that.. maybe even incorporating melodies from Mellon Collie in general.. seems like an interesting prospect..
BUT! Possibly more interestingly to you, dear reader, I think I'm going to get back to the Sandman stuff when those two projects are done.. at the very least finish out the Corinthian / Dream Nexus arc. (I did kind of start it.. and not finish it.. - honestly I've tried to get back into it a handful of times - I feel like the "Moving In" book NEEDS to sound like a sitcom theme song eating itself.. but I haven't been able to get it right..)
Okay kids, summer's over.
Back the clusterfuck of clustered fuckery that is higher education.
Here's three waltzes to send ye off:
And as previously reported - I'll try really really hard (like popping blood vessels hard) to produce something or other over the course of the term.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
Thought I'd present the previously mentioned old school General MIDI compositions:
Anyway - I've begun writing a handful of bluesy waltz type songs to finish off the summer writing spree - and then back to school.
Though - I think I'm going to try to score Night of the Living Dead in my free time.
This is one of those plans that will likely self-immolate in light of real life - so take it with a grain of salt, but it is tentatively planned. If that doesn't happen then you can maybe-probably-possibly count on a trilogy of scores to Mele's Voyage to the Moon - one scored from the humans point of view, one from the moon monster's point of view, and one from the audience's point of view.
One of those two will probably happen.
Shit, I don't know. I'll try.
