I’m so hesitantly excited. I’m meeting with a composer today to discuss my projects and to see if we’d like to work together on them. I’ve been asking around for what seems like forever but in real time is probably like 2 or 3 weeks. When I say asking around I wasn’t necessarily asking people directly if they would like to compose music for the shows I’m working on it was more like ‘do you know anyone who might be interested?’ Everyone was very hesitant to point me in a direction without seeing or knowing more about the shows — which is fair enough. So I’d either send them some writing and then hear nothing back which feels really awful by the way. Or explain what the projects are all about and also get no response back. What’s wrong? I don’t get it. Oh well. Yesterday I message 2 people I knew who composed music. One guy who I had worked with before and wrote a little jingle with for this project I was developing called The Teddy Bear Club. I’ve been trying to reach that guy forever…I accidentally messaged another guy of the same name who also composes music but lives in like the U.K. I also asked some of my improv friends if they knew anyone who would be interested in helping me and someone suggested the person I am meeting with this afternoon.
I’m so excited for the show that has yet to be constructed. First I’ll need the title track ‘The Musical and I’. Then I want to write a song about how self indulgent this all is. I need to work on an outline for this show. I guess it’s not enough anymore to say it’s based on this blog. But I still think it’s kind of sad that in the real like version of this play I don’t get to be in a musical. Hmm? Oh well I guess this is the musical I’ll be in.
