Burn out as status quo
So what does burning the candle at both ends get you? Unexpected results I guess. Last week I predicted that I would be writing a slow soft reserved piece about the birth of my son for this What Next? Festival in Canada. Now I’m working on a raucous burner complete with jazz college chords and big beats. Tentatively titled “Those Eyelashes Stay With Me” we’ll see if I have the cajones to stick with it.
I think I have just finished the ending, now It’s just tidying up some horn melodies and then notating the whole thing. Then I’ll hit it with a scalpel and cut up the parts that aren’t necessary.
