Music AND art day today. Oh my.
What I learned today: My non-artist brain likes to think of hair as strands. This is not at all helpful when trying to make a rough pencil sketch, where you really just want to trace the outline and overlaps.
Most of the day was spent composing "Hyperspace," a high energy little tune for those times when you are hurtling though extra-dimensional space with reckless abandon and trying not to die in a giant fireball from an asteroid collision. Seriously, we've all been there.
It's coming along. I have a few of the basic bits worked out, though there's quite a bit to go, and I'm not "feeling the love" yet. The main problem with trying to compose a specific song for a specific purpose is that if it's not working, you're still kind of committed. I start a lot of pieces, but only a handful ever get finished because they'll have one cool riff that just doesn't go anywhere. We'll see how it goes, hopefully I don't have to reboot it. :)
The other thing of note is that my giant snare from yesterday is probably a bit airy for something that wouldn't sound too out of place coming from Symphony X or Metallica, so that might need some work. We'll save that for some heavy, plodding, real-space themed song. :)
