i’m working on a new composition. it’s in the very early stages, like pre-conception….
it’s another shipwreck story then i’ve been able to read a bit about. i’ve considered taking this one from different angles because there’s a lot of potential to work with in the story:
where to go with the lyrics will depend on the existential (subjective) musings!
i keep asking myself about the “reception of the audience”, which i’ve never asked before, but it’s a different shipwreck so i’m bound to have different experiences here. … and different audiences…..a HA! so that’s what it is mostly that’s creating such critical dilemma. i need to let that lie alone. i need to remember that i’m writing about this to explore and uncover and illuminate.
musically, i am toying around with two different approaches; one historic to it’s time, the other, cultural to it’s name.
