Today’s lesson: Richard and I need to learn to stick to a brief without deviating!
We didn’t get as far as expected with our “Long Shadows” library music assignment today. A melancholic sentiment had been requested…..however we frequently found ourselves bending the rules! We were enthusiastically enjoying our creative journey together, and before we knew it there were funky bass lines and uplifting melodic hooks in abundance. Hmmm. Back to the drawing board.
Mandy came home to offer sound advice: “Get a grip you two – you’ve just got to get on with the job without going off-piste.” Yeah – we agreed – that’s certainly the way forward. Our “Long Shadows” composition will NOT be tempted in to quirky Bollywood extravagance next time!
