I started yesterday morning by drawing the line across the page, beneath the second staff. Above the line was sketched, oh, maybe two weeks ago . . . surprised myself to find that this was all I had done on paper, before going to town in the ‘virtual environment’ of Sibelius. Angular Whimsies is two-thirds done, before I got to work this morning; so I’m closing in on the final three minutes’ worth. I’m cooking the bass clarinet line first, and will fold in some mildly furious bongos afterwards.
Oh, and I drew the initial sketch at the top of page when I was still thinking marimba. That changed.
Don’t know why blogger flipped the photo wrong. Sorry.
