It is 2:00 p.m.

I just finished bouncing to disk what sounded like a good take.

Will listen to it later, tonight, to make sure, then convert to MP3 and then post,asap.

Really great song.

Really hard to get just right.

There is always room for some improvement, but that's where we just have to let go for now and wait for another day.

I am looking forward to working on the first movement of Moonlight Sonata.

Probably one of the most hacked up songs that there is.

Loaded with slippery tricks.

Luckily, I started to figure this song out about 40 years ago and have played it every which way imaginatble (within reason, of course).

Fast, slow, really slow, on piano, on synthesizer, on string samplers, etc.

Thinking of going straight piano first, and then doing some orchestration of it.

It is just too tempting to do, such that I do not see how I will pass it up.

At any rate, I am just trying to memorialize the 2 p.m. finishing time, here and now.

Must get going.

Much to be done quickly.

Hours start going way faster as flights approach, in my experience, and this is no different in that regard.

It is as if it telscopically begins to collapse.

All bets are off and planning becomes something that is only going to happen in the broadest strokes, knowing that if it can go wrong, it will (Murphy's Law?).

Oh well ---

I do have to admit that it has been a lot of fun.

Some would say that I have way too much fun.

I agree.
