I looked at what had seemed, several hours ago, to be an effective new section of the piece simply is not. I’m looking for variety, yes, but this just sounds like an entirely different piece. THat’s not good. All the more so in a short piece. It does have some interest in itself – I’m pretty sure I can rework this into some future composition, just like the main bass groove here is taken from an earlier composition. I think I ran into the problem because I started thinking logically instead of reacting to the musical energy. This is a very common trap! And one I will work to avoid. If I get some steam back maybe I can try more today. But I don’t feel I have the energy. Maybe I should just do it without energy. We will see.
