Yet another piece.

I've been misinforming you, the reader. I'm not writing SONGS, I'm writing pieces. (Songs would have to have words, by definition.) In anycase, I have yet another PIECE in the works. Kinda. It's an old piece I conceived years ago, and it wasn't very good as an entire entity (say that 10 times fast), but there were good sections and ideas within. So, I'm overhauling it quite significantly. I still haven't even finished working on my other couple pieces that I've been working on for the last month or so.

All this inspiration, I don't know what to do with it all! I would really like to write a jazz/big band styled piece for concert band. (Inspiration? The Incredibles soundtrack. Thank you Michael Giacchino, you are the man.)

Been trying to get the hang of Sibelius 7 as well as my MacBookPro. I am having some complications, what with all the kinks not completely worked out of the new version of Sibelius and all. Time and patience.

On that note, I don't know why I didn't get a Mac much earlier in my music production/composition endeavors. Outstanding interface. I couldn't possibly dream of going back to anything else.
