Well today was quite the success! A lot of people slumber partied at my place, and we all did a caravan out to the shoot location. Although we didn't get started as soon as we had planned, we most definitely had a blast and got so much done! Tomorrow morning is going to come early. I will edit this post soon and add in some of the pics of the day.

It has been super crazy the amount of work that can go into a small, project that then suddenly becomes a Hollywood wannabe project, that then becomes all sorts of political. Let me tell you this has been so super stressful as I have never encountered anything like this. It is exciting and exhausting at the same time.
Short story here though is that this all began right on my back porch with a bunch of friends just goofing off when suddenly a song was born. Then I show the song to a friend who is a director/actor for years, then suddenly there are producers and more and more responsibilities being flung at me, and my close friends just to get this project underway. Unfortunately, due to the enormous amounts of pressure one of the producers was causing many of the cast and crew were becoming severely agitated which, I was having to resolve. What was supposed to be fun, started turning into a nightmare. So, upon letting the producer know that we appreciated the help, the director then stood down.
So what went from possibly being super fun and exciting, turned into drama. But even still things are still turning out fabulously. And as they say, you find out who your friends are. We have a few really wonderful individuals still going on forward with the shoot. And we will have a fabulous time making something come together, grass roots, gorilla, and pure ambition status. Thanks to all those involved.

This piece is something that grew out of some experimenting with alternate resolutions, that melt away from the traditional dominate to root, but rather that resolves with a soft whole-step down from the second to root. This discovery has left me many times feeling as though I have been transported to another place. As always the instrument and the music teaches me so much more than I can explain.
