"Story Doctor Kit Part 1"
Watched this module again.  Points from this module:
  • Time:  30 minutes

  • Goal:  30 minutes per day basic music work:

Electric warm ups on the MojoCaster
“Talkin’ Loud and Sayin’ Nothing” - Living Colour version
“It’s Your Thing” - Isley Brothers
D-sus work
Total time:  45 minutes
  • Goal:  15 minutes per day (minimum) exercise:

Active rest:  15 minutes

    • Goal:  15 minutes per day (minimum) scoring work for the movie:

Read Electronic Musician article, “Master Class: Refined Repetition - Building the Perfect Loop in Eleven Steps”

Granby Street swapped second and third verse opening line
“So What” - Miles Davis
R&B Chord work
E - B/D# - C#m - A progression work
“Dies Irae” from Verdi’s “Requiem” - Worked on the piece using the MojoCaster.  Played the piece as whole.  Repeated and polished rough spots, especially the octave climbs and the single position dyads, integrated them into the piece.  Repeated the opening/closing chord to get comfortable with the fingering.
Total time:  45 minutes

Took a break from working out.  Rolled that time into music preparations.  Getting focused for the Fire Escape CD release party tonight. The way forward, musically is going to be:
    • Move the rest of the sound libraries to hard drives
    • Put Electronic Musician article on looping into practice
    • Move the R&B chord work forward
    • Move the R&B songs forward, or find workable excerpts to use in the score
Okay,  Mount Olive Men's Choir is in there again.  Turn up the volume and groove on the bass!
