Sushi, Phones, and P.D.Q. Bach

Tomorrow is my birthday! We're going out to Todai for sushi and then to Fox Tower to see "House of the Flying Daggers". I'm looking forward to it.

Last night, my mom and I went to Radioshack to reactivate my cell phone. Only problem is that there was so much red tape concerning addresses and all that jazz that I wasn't able to get it last night. So, we're going in again tonight to try again. Hopefully, we'll have better luck this time. She's also going to take me grocery shopping, which is something I've needed to do for a while.

As I'm working on my Gloria, I'm beginning to wonder how well it's going to fit in with the rest of the Mass. It seems to stand out a little. I'm not going to scrap it, but I'm thinking that I may want to finish it later as a seperate piece and do a Gloria that fit better into the context of the rest of it. Either way, I'm still having fun write it. In other composition news, I'm going to be writing the music for the play. Since Moliere didn't quite include music with the songs he threw in his script, I now have to go in and put something together. I get to write music to some of the most ridiculous lyrics (short of P.D.Q. Bach) and I also get to write harpsichord music. I'll have fun with it, though.

Of course! Any good composer has to know what they should never aspire to be! :P I enjoy Schickele's work. He's like the Weird Al of Classical music!

It takes some serious chops to be able to murder songs that way! : D

He's actually the reason that I enjoy classical music...his stuff intrigued me enough to want to know what it was supposed to sound like.

I got to see Peter Schickele live a few years ago...I loved every minute of it!

I've never seen one of his shows, but the next time he's around I'm going to make it a point to go.

Just remember that the music for your play should be simple and lively. The participants are ACTORS not MUSICIANS. So don't make it like all your other confusing stuff.

In most cases, I agree, but I'm fortunate in the fact that those performing the music are music majors, and vocalists (including myself), but I have no desire to torture. The harpsichord music will be done on the computer, so there's no need to worry about that.
