So, to business. I renamed my piece "At the Edge of Rage & Glory" to "Between Rage & Glory." The original name just never sat well with me; I think mostly because most of the name is the same as a Lady Gaga song. I've updated all my websites and the score itself, to reflect. I'm 99% sure of that anyway.
I updated it on my Facebook page, but I also have added ReverbNation to my list of websites that I have to maintain (this number is getting preposterous). If only there was one website that did everything...AND for free.
I'm still tweaking my jazz band compositions so they can be posted on both my main website and Score Exchange, and I should have them up in the near future, though with pending challenges, that is kind of up in the air.
Here's another plug: if there are any colleges/high schools that would like to play FREE and ORIGINAL compositions, hit me up!
I've been attending these Guitar Center sponsored Avid Pro Tools 10 classes that are called Recording Made Easy. The emphasis is on Apple products working seamlessly with Pro Tools. I've gone to two so far, and there are two more (10 am Saturday @ Guitar Centers across the country). I find them pretty informative. I had had a sour taste in my mouth from a previous version of Pro Tools, specially Pro Tools HD 8. It was absolutely deplorable. It was such a delicate balance with all the connections worked together that if there was just ONE issue, troubleshooting would easily become an hours-long task. Example:
I still have the idea in the back of my mind to have my own studio one day. It will happen. Oh, that many things I have learned operating studios for the Marine Corps.
