Working from Home

Of course, it being Christmas vacation and all, I'm back in Poplar Bluff juggling family engagements, taking care of those things I can only do during those 4 weeks I'm in PB, and trying to actually get some work done. And finally, after 4 years of college and 2 years of grad school, I've finally figured out how to get a decent workflow going. Which is good, since I want to complete a lot of stuff this week.

I've mostly been working on the Pipe Dreams Band Orchestration this week, and I'm nearly halfway done with my first pass of orchestration. And it's going…better than expected. In addition to that, I'm thinking of my Missouri piano piece, my upcoming Kansas piano piece, and my prepared piano work.

But, for the time being, I thought I'd show off the workspace that I've built in my basement.


I think most of this is self-explanatory. The speakers are my Mackie MR5MK2's and the mixer is an Alesis Multimix8USB, all from Oklahoma, the piano and the drafting table belong to my parents, and the ridiculous green bass on the wall is a Vanderburg original.

As far as what I'm doing here? Wait and see…
