October 19 - News to Storm Your Heart
Up reasonably early, doing two more pages of orchestration to Moses and Aaron: VIII. Intonation - "Then Moses Called" and producing a transposition of Antigone: XVI. You Think You Knew for Micah Epps (he requests down to Dm from Em, but turns out that a version in Cm is already in the computer, so I bring that, and he likes it).
Rehearsals for both John Billota's
Quantum Mechanic and my
Antigone go very well, despite present company having to cover on piano (Keisuke has a conflict today), and William Loney gets to choreograph
XI. The Spring Is Wound.
Production meeting follows,
while William works with Dalyta on XIX. News to Break Your Heart.
I drop William off at his Oakland place (Harriet goes to a grant-writing meeting in San Francisco); heading home, the setting sun sets off the Lagoon and
North Lagoon Mountains,
and I finish orchestration of M&A: VIII and begin IX. Storm/Tempest - "At Midnight,"
not to be confused with Tempest Storm.
