After a late night last night at the Venetian Ball, a fundraiser for the Centre and a whole lot of fun, I was in no shape to work seriously on the symphony, despite not having touched it in days.
This afternoon I opened it up and toyed with the harmonies in the Grandiose Bit. I’d been thinking that the three repetitions of the two-measure phrase was just a bit too repetitious, so I played with changing the middle repetition a bit.
It didn’t really work, but that was because I’ve had my laptop in the living room all weekend instead of upstairs, where I can actually figure these things out on the keyboard. Changing one chord was such a mess that I decided against playing with it any further and reverted to the original. Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday I’ll try again.
Later in the evening I worked on the Lichtenbergian website, adding the seal to the header, and the author to each post. That actually took a while, because CSS/PHP is cranky. But now we know who wrote each post, at least.
I have been most impressed with my fellow Lichtenbergians’ mock exposés of themselves. Varying degrees of outrage and satire abound. I am actually keenly awaiting the exposés of some members who are in reality the more outrageous of us all: Matthew, Mike, Craig and Jobie. If they don’t post by the middle of the week, perhaps the rest of us can write one for them.
