After my brief foray into glass music, I’m back to working on the piccolo concerto.
As of today, the first section is pretty much done except for a few details. As for the second section, the piccolo part itself is nearly complete except for a few gaps that hopefully won’t take long to plug. Most of the orchestra part currently exists only as a harmonic progression, with few details noted as to texture. Which is actually not unusual at this stage.
The frustrating part is the ending. I have a pretty clear idea of how I want the piece to end but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to connect it to the rest of the piece. Hopefully I’ll be able to fix this soon.
In other news, I’ve been contacted by an entertainment concern in Branson Missouri about using one of my older Christmas music arrangements as background to an e-card promotional campaign they’re planning, to announce their Christmas offerings. Something new for me. We’ve come to an informal agreement, but contracts and stuff have not been signed, so I’ll hold off on further information for the moment.
