During today's little gallery walk, I was struck by one certain thing. The fact that people seemed to be bothered by the idea and actions I have taken for my project. There were only two people who were somewhat interested in it, but the only feedback I had gotten from them is that I should get a few other perspectives from other people who have been struggling with depression so that I can get a few more angles on what depression can do to people and not just my point of view.
Since my last blog entry, I have practically restarted. I wanted to keep my intro because it was the best part, but the major time scale screw up that I had done has forced me into a situation where I have to rethink my song. I am still going with the Raising awareness for depression, but it is going to sound a lot better than my first and really rough draft. I have also talked to a college professor about my song and I am still patiently waiting for a bit of feedback.
I have faced the major challenge of rewriting my song but still keeping the first line or so. I am in a sort of creative rut, but I am slowly working my way out of it. I am also still struggling with my melody. I have a slight clue about what I want to do for my melody, but I am going to have to talk to my mentor if it is okay because I am using a variation of a melody from the song "Where is my mind" by the Pixies.
My next course of action is to meet back up with my mentor and try to see if my melody will work for 3/4 time and if I can even use it. Not only that, but I need to see how I can upload the song to places like sound cloud and I tunes. I also need to start working on digitally editing my cover art so that it will fit on a CD case.
