Music Composers Unite!
Yesterday I was working late outside, fixing my car door, a terrible job trying to adjust the hinges. It was a bit cold and I didn't feel well after finishing it at 11:30 pm. At that point I knew a fever was coming. I woke up in the night several times in fever chills. And each time to a dream of the opening bars of a song I'm working on, a very cheerful Christmas song with full choir and piano. I heard a children's choir together with a mixed choir and a church organ. Everything was much bigger than what I've actually written so far. It got very annoying in the end, because at some point I got the feeling that all in the choir just knew I had a fever and they went on and on trying to wake me up by singing the same bars over and over. I hope this dream hasn't spoilt the song for me.
