Reworking the Works

I just spent a lot of time reworking parts of my remix... It's amazing to think about how much I've managed to pack into this thing already. I'm at the point where I'm worried it might be too long (even though it doesn't feel like it). I'll probably be able to cut it down, but I'd really hate to do so.

My next challenge will be to get the thing into better samples, which requires outside help. Hopefully, the guy I asked to help me won't return it again and say I need to work on it some more. It may refine the piece, but it's frustrating having worked on it for so long. I've been working on it since February and I'd like to see a finished product sometime soon. Of course, nine months is little compared to some composers who took ten years or more for their pieces. Then again, their pieces were much longer, completely original (not based off of someone else's work), and overall better.

On Monday, I'm going to hear the Oregon Symphony again. This time they're performing Ottorino Respighi's The Pines of Rome. I looked over the program notes online and from what I read, I'm really looking forward to it. This is the kind of texture in music that I like a lot. Of course, I'm not going to be certain until I've been there and heard it, but so far so good. Student prices are only $5, so if you're able to come I would suggest it. I'll be with my friends from campus, but we can meet up or at least say "hi" or something.
