Round-up of past week

Hatchford Hotel

  • Made a few tiny tweaks to script based on some lingering notes.
  • Met with Megan and Ian F. last night to talk about what I might be able to do next with HH. Ian had quite a surprise for me. More on that later.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Talked with Greg about “Beyond” and he’s not as sold on it as I had hoped. So, it is shelved (for now).
  • More pre-production on “Cool Rabbits,” “All That Sky,” and “Tempest of Tarragon”
  • Those three tunes are now ready for drum tracking.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Final song structure in place for “Tempest of Tarragon” – removed a few bars here, added some there.
  • Then I found a short piece of prose that Greg wrote that I want to use as a spoken piece in the instrumental.
  • Which lead me to another of Greg’s pieces that should be an entire prelude/introduction/separate track
  • So now “The Tempest of Tarragon” will probably be 2 or 3 minutes longer still.
  • TBD
  • Then I rehearses/composed drum parts. Almost there – not quite.

Hot Neon Magic

  • Drum practice. Oy.
