Let’s recap day 5:
- Aside from a few emotional swings, the challenge has acquired its actual priority in my mind, attracting resources to make it happen. (As I heard via Vic Johnson, there are two fundamental components for that, no matter what the task is: the belief that it’s possible and the desire to do it).
- I started to sketch a drum part to support the melodic part, and noticed that the simple 4/4 time was working well only for the very beginning. Most of the content has a compound time feeling (all these sections were rewritten in 6/8 but one in 9/8), on top of that quite a few parts have upbeats.
- In cleaning up the composition to work nicer within the given structural context, a few good things were smoothed out for now. They might find their way back after a while if I will really miss them. Alternatively, I might realize that they really did not fit the flow of the music in the first place.
