You might like this new version of “Sirens of Hope,” the opening number in my musical Eden in Babylon. This is an audio facsimile of a draft of the music notation file I will use for the performance tracks for the Summer 2023 production. The idea is that the sounds replicating the score will eventually be replaced by those played by real human musicians. And of course there will be much singing too.
I was fairly certain I’d finish the piece I’m arranging by about now, according to the hope I expressed on Tuesday. I’m not done yet, but not for a bad reason.
Just after I made that allusion, the Kids started turning all their parts for our “Ode to the Universe” project. So I got sidetracked over to what is realistically a higher priority, and wound up doing my own piano track and singing track for the Kids as well.
I’d have told you earlier today, but my computer keeps getting wrapped up in all these uploads — trumpet videos and what-not. When it does, I can’t log on. The uploads might also be faster at some other locale, but here I am sheltering.
Anyway, I canceled one of them just to let you know what’s going on. I’ll have a snippet of “Ode to the Universe” and also the piece I was working on, but I can’t tell you when. Probably later tonight or sometime this weekend.
That said, Happy Fourth of July to whom the holiday applies. And to all, stay tuned and stay safe.
