Day 158: Worked for a living today

Worked for a living today

I worked a full day in the recording studio, again, finishing last week’s recording of George Palmer’s Black, White and a Little Blue, a work for clarinet and piano. It was 7 hours of editing and finding the best bars of 5 hours 25 minutes of recording last week.

I forgot how enjoyable the process of stitching together hundreds of takes into one big work was. Nine years of doing it on a weekly basis with the SSO as their Recording Manager, often Recording Producer, had already turned grey in my mind. This was a welcome reminder.

Sent my brother a Happy Birthday email. He turned 60 today. Wow, we’re all getting old.
