Trip One: End of Day Four – Composition First Draft

Today was consumed by processing of materials and development of the composition. So there are not so many active ‘goings on’ to report.

However, I did manage to sketch out the whole form of the first piece. With a clear (at least it is clear to me) beginning, middle and end (though I think it needs more work to fully polish and emphasise it).

I decided to end with the mill pond on the river ‘Akerselva’, directly outside the windows of NOTAM (photo above).

If you get a chance, let me know what you think about the piece.

There is still more work to be done. I have a few notes of areas to develop and will hopefully discover a few more ideas in my sleep, but if you have any comments I’d love to hear them.

Detailed Compositional Thoughts / Reflections

  • Find and insert more ‘guitar edit’ recordings.
  • Develop / delete ending.
  • Edit and isolate ‘swishing dishwasher powder’. Develop this more.
  • Develop squeaky door sounds: transposition and stretch.
  • Develop dishwasher plates and clinks more?
  • Play and record corridor resonance.
  • Move back second guitar edits so as to cover the keyboard crossfade.
