Writing

What I did:

  • outlining. but not so much

What comes next:

  • finish outlining

What I learnt:

  • sometimes just more fun to work on things that are flowing rather than what ‘i was supposed to do’

Music

What I did:

  • drum machining for WL4. coming together very nicely, probably my favorite so far. who knew practice made better?
  • solo sectioning

What comes next:

  • polishing up some tracks
  • starting on solo tone and tracks

What I learnt:

  • so much about song dynamics and drum machines
    • songs are just like any other piece of creative work
    • there are ‘acts’
    • your instruments determine the height of these acts. Play it just right and it’ll all line up to make the feel right.

Other

What I did:

  • i don’t talk much about technical stuff here but lots of things learnt in the coding world today
  • learning tricks in the good old text editor

What comes next:

  • scripting exercises and deconstructing existing scripts
