Oh, you don't?
Well, that exhausts my conversation topic for the week. Let's have some random updates, shall we?
Current song I can't stop listening to: Coming Home by The Bianca Story. This band is Swiss. Swiss, I tell you. And they sound good, which is positively bizarre. Swiss pop music is usually right up there with K-pop in terms of intellectual stimulation.
Current food I can't stop eating: Lindt White Chocolate Mousse ... chocolate. It's like white chocolate mousse, wrapped in more white chocolate, and it makes me really sick. After two squares. And I've had four at least. I'm really sick right now.
Most interesting thing that happened recently: A dance rehearsal where thirty ballerinas danced to some orchestra stuff I had written. Very interesting. It's weird how little clue most people have of the kind of work that goes into these art forms. Ballerina = fluffy tutus and trotting. NO! Costume designer = snipping fabric into shapes. NO! Recorder playing = icky, squeaky pre-school music. NO! Writer = sitting on the computer all day and trying not to procrastinate. MAYBE!
Anyway, two of the ballerinas collided violently during the Fox Dance. I swear I didn't laugh.
Current moment I'm still face-palming over: There was a camera person at the rehearsal. He was making a telly documentary about something. And afterwards he was all up in my face like,
"WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WRITE MUSIC!?"
And I, media PROFESSIONAL that I am, flicked dust off my shoulder and replied coolly,
"Ohhhh, good answer. WHAT IS IT LIKE TO ORCHESTRATE MUSIC!"
"HOW DO YOU DO IT?"
That, my friends, is eloquence. Let's hope he doesn't use that for the telly documentary. Or perhaps he'll use it for a different telly documentary. Like, one about toads.
The second most interesting thing that happened recently was a workshop where we learned how to write for drums. Writing for drums is surprisingly NOT EASY. And I'm fairly certain I was the only one paying attention to how one does so. Because most of our class was girls, and most of the girls were busy blushing and giggling. Our teacher looked like Mr. Tumnus, you see.
So that's it for currents. S'all I got, people. But I hope to post again. This week. And I'm thinking about making a vlog.
I'll explain what brought on this heinous idea latah.
