I just completed a long crazy string quartet this evening.. My brain has totally melted. The composition is for a performance with The Degenerate Art Ensemble for our big Frye Art Museum exhibit/Performance mid next year. Doesn't look like much but I am pretty excited about it. I haven't written by hand in a looooong time and man.. my fingers hurt like crazy! I realized I haven't even picked up a pencil in ages. It felt nice to compose this way again. I wish I could have been away from my computer, but I was composing off of a video of Haruko Nishimura dancing a crazy doll dance. I am going to go try it all out with a real string quartet tomorrow.. Maybe if I am fancy enough I will post some audio from the rehearsal. Okay..blah blah blah.. I am going to go watch bad tv now.
