So I finished the fix-its earlier alluded to, and am reasonably satisfied with all the music you can now hear on these links:
Ode to the Universe – 4:40
Urban Pathos – 17:52
But let’s face it. I’m not ever going to get either of these scripts written. All I’m ever going to do is keep writing music. My mind is going to continue to generate new music, despite myself, no matter what else I set about to do.
So this is what I should do. I should advertise for a lyricist and a librettist. Somebody to write the lyrics, and somebody to write the scripts. Maybe two different people. But they need to be competent. They can’t be only in it for the money. Probably, there should be no money involved. I want somebody who resonates with my music. Who recognizes that these are show tunes – they’re Musical Theatre. They suggest witty lyrics with sophisticated internal rhymes. They suggest movement and dance. They suggest more than mere mood. They suggest dramatic action. They suggest scenario.
Either I advertise on someplace like Craigslist, or I go to the nearby University music departments and drama departments, and post notices. Or both. But it’s got to be done, otherwise all this music will go to waste.
And there’s too much of it to go to waste. Also – it’s not worthy of being wasted. There’s decent music here – but like I said, it’s show music. It suggests a certain kind of lyrics, along a certain kind of theme – and it suggests action.
There’s no sense in postponing “action.” Now’s the time.
