Writing parts

Thursday the 27th of March. It’s 6 in the morning. I just got home from school, from the composition studio. The sun is already rising slowly over Tampere. I went to the studio at 22.00 and had decided I wouldn’t leave before I had got all the parts ready for my orchestrated version of my song cycle Dagbok, that will be practised next weekend… At about 2 AM I was already extremely tired, but as I had decided not to go before I was ready, so I stayed. At about 3 AM I put on some pop music and danced alone around in the studio for 3 min (in my concert dress, what a sight!) for getting up my pulse so that I wouldn’t feel so sleepy. At 3.30 AM I was putting on songs on Youtube and singing a long while I was doing the mecanical editing of my parts… At 5 AM I was finally READY!!!! Time to go home!!! This day only began like 21 hours ago…! Time for some SLEEP!

Good Morning Tampere!
