Managed to stick a direct nod to Berlioz's Les Troyens in Act III (specifically two bars of Châtiment Effroyable). It just so happens that it mixes incredibly well with a further development of Clock Town's theme. It also just so happens that I have a massive boner for Berlioz's music.

Picture unrelated.

"And this is how you use a laptop as a drum."

Liam Greenough has left, and a lot of good work has been done during his presence.

The sketching of the prologue shall continue online, while I apply the corrections that have been annotated during last month's revisions, and fill the gaps that remain from there. The first of those gaps being a recitativo between the Happy Mask Salesman and Professor Shikashi in Act I.

BAD TIMPANI

The revision notes for the orchestration of Act II are done. Much like with Act I, all that remains is the writing of a few recitativos and the actual engraving.

Now researching alternate methods for the notation of certain parts of Act III which are... singular.

The first victim of Majora's Wrath

We've discovered that we need yet another instrument: the piccolo timpano. There have been so far four additions to the percussion section since we started revising the score.

Not for a small pit.

The revision notes for the orchestration of Act I are as good as done. All that remains is the writing of a few recitativos and the actual engraving.

Act II is about halfway through orchestration, and is contributing to the destructive predation of the elusive green pencil. And so we shall consume...

Consume...

Consume everything...

imanidiot The libretto for Act III has been completely revised. Now it's on to orchestration, starting again from Act I. The libretto for the prologue will be addressed once the revisions of the libretto of the 3 acts have been revised.

Revise you soon,

Revisor.

Still polishing the libretto for the end of Act III; treading carefully and exhaustively to make sure it flows well.

Writing well for choir is quite the task. X_X

employment The librettos of Act I and Act II are now fully revised. On to Act III. Once that's done, it's back to the beginning to revise the orchestration.

Lulz aside, the reorganization of Act II continues. It's more than just switching the places of numbers, so this is why we end up resorting to silliness to conserve sanity.

Also, Majora now glows in the dark.

IMG-20150309-00495 Revision speed varies. Although it took us no longer than three days to revise the libretto of the first 179 pages of Act I, the last 14 pages took three more.

IMG-20150308-00490Coming up with novel notation for recitativos, de-emphasizing the counting of time purely to giving cues. Since singers are already supposed to disregard the meter, we're guessing no one will even notice there's a difference.

A.K.A: "Start singing, I'll catch up."

P.S: I won't pull a Stockhausen, I swear.
