Gahhhh!!! Don't make me compose!!!!

Did I say that out loud?


Although I enjoy writing I truly despise having to compose.  Yes, I am not bad at it, and I've written some really pretty things, but getting started is always torture.

Having finished Lichtenbergianism: procrastination as a creative strategy (except for final edits and layout), it's time to turn my attention to two music projects I agreed to take on: music for Southern Arc Dance's Red Dress, and a television jingle for Newnan Theatre Company's production of Kitchen Witches.

I should probably do Kitchen Witches first; it's supposed to be cheesy and amateurish.  It's due in a couple of weeks.

On the other hand, Red Dress is a serious project that I have to get done this fall: the musicians have to learn the music, Paulo has to choreograph it, and the dancers have to learn it.  I should probably start banging my head against that wall first.

And what makes me think that Red Dress is going to be torture?
