It's been an interesting week. I'm currently sitting in a pretty house in Manzanita, OR, where I've been spending the week getting out and seeing what the scenery of the west coast has to offer. I'll be back home late Sunday, where I can finally reunite with my musical paraphernelia (and a decent Internet connection) and churn out some more random sketches.
Regarding the bad news on a lot of people's minds, I was quite saddened to hear about James Horner's untimely passing. I wasn't made aware of it until yesterday, when I happened to glance at an article title on Facebook mobile. Horner was one of my favorite film composers growing up (though I didn't know his name back then), and I still listen to everything he has done with similar feelings. The music world has lost one of its brightest stars, and now the whole sky seems dimmer. I'll likely continue to listen to his music until the day I die. R.I.P. James Horner :(
On a bit more positive of a note, I finally acquired Kontakt 5 the day before leaving for Seattle, and it's given me access to a few better libraries that have been sitting on my hard drive for a long time (gathering dust). Lord knows I've been waiting on getting it for far too long, but it's finally taken care of. It feels nice to have the lock busted on all of my nicer instrument libraries (which I have very few of). Now it's on to fixing my computer.... sigh.
Originally, I was planning to enter the Newgrounds-Inspired Music Contest (everyone's doing it, after all), but I am pulling out of that. I started too late and didn't really like what I was working on. I had an offer for a collab sitting by, as well, and I decided to just spend the downtime that I had here in OR working on that (it's a very small project, I'll be uploading those soon enough). Good luck to all the talented folk participating in the contest! The final album is bound to be fantastic!
That's about it for now. I don't usually write these things because I have very little interesting things to share, but I thought it might be appropriate to share my condolences for James Horner's death and let anyone interested know that I'm not going to be submitting something for NIM. Sorry for disjointed rambles.
