As well as I know the intro at this point, it was still very helpful to go through the score with a set of highlighters. Lots of echoing back and forth, and not just between the voice and the wind instruments in the B theme — the whole thing is like a game of ping-pong, which may be a large part of why I like it so much. I love music that does that.
Now, I have to isolate the major vocal themes.
And after that, I need to figure out what the hell I want to make. Okay, I’ve got my ingredients straight. Now, what’s on the menu?
So anyway, still ruminating. It’s fun, though. 🙂 And still playing through the stuff I’ve done so far, just getting it happier under my hands.
