It’s a good thing updating the audio for these vignettes and whatnot is happening on a schedule of my own choosing, so it doesn’t really matter when life, the universe, and everything conspire to interrupt that carefully cultivated schedule. So I’ve missed a couple of weeks. Sure, it’s been quietly driving me up the wall, but that’s no big deal. I’ve managed it. The problem would be if I let things slide so long that I simply stopped with the updates. That would be an issue, something to be concerned about, but here we are.

One of the things I wanted to accomplish with the vignettes was stay far away from solo piano music. I had done a whole bunch of sonatinas, and Sibelius had improved to the point that the fake instruments didn’t sound that horrible. I needed to experiment. I needed to master multiple instruments and orchestration. Everything was way too melody and harmony. I really needed to do something about that.
