writing music
who am i kidding? i never finish pieces.. i split the opera into 9 segments:

  1. 0-2 - exposition
  2. 2-2.5 - inciting incident
  3. 2.5-4 - denial
  4. 4-5 - bargaining
  5. 5-6 - anger
  6. 6-7 - despair
  7. 7-8 - acceptance
  8. 8-8.5 - climax
  9. 8.5-10 - denouement

each segment is a fully contained aria, except for 2 and 8, which are extended segues. most segments have their own time signatures. i like to mix it up. about half of these segments are "done", but i'll prolly still tweak them... make additions and subtractions... and be generally a perfectionist. the other half are started and have general themes/rhythms and basslines/chords (where applicable) laid out but need to be filled in with supporting instruments and especially voices. i'm still trying to figure out what to do with all the voices since i've never worked with them outside the context of punk. oh.. and i still have to write a ton of lyrics. at least it's all in english......
