The result of today's grinding: 40 seconds of highly produced orchestral nonsense followed by a minute and a half of swing-time piano rock. It's the sketch version of Ticket to Paradise, the theme to my project.
The orchestral nonsense reflects the character's epiphany. The piano rock is because the epiphany must be followed by song and dance. The piano rock has a long way to come. The bass line must be swapped out for a live track. The lyrics have yet to be finalized. The melody is even sketched at this point, not finalized either.
Even though so much of it remains unfinished, it feels awful good to be working on one of my burning obsessions for actual credit.
