Furiously working on composing and practicing. In a week's worth of work, I have a good deal of parts I and II of "The Hollow Men" set to melodies, with accompaniment (as well as the melodies for part of sections III-V) sketched out. It's highly dissonant, and I need to make sure none of it is plagarized from Holst.

It'll be accompanied by my computer. I have non-"acoustic" things in mind for some of this, and I don't feel like putting my accompanist through much more strain. It should be fun, though it's not at all happy (hey, it fits the poem). I think I've used about three major chords in it. Here's to the whole-tone and octatonic scales.

I'm making too little progress on Debussy.

I suppose this is what it feels like to be a serious musician.

Of course, there's philosophy work to be done, too, but that's currently in the background.
