Pussies and Poodles

Hey guys and girls. Well, as of last week (Monday and Thursday respectively) I've officially begun a new round of therapy with a new therapist. So far so good: Monday was the preliminary, no-charge meet-and-greet-get-to-know-you, and Thursday was the first session proper. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about this, so fingers crossed it's going to lead to some serious mental-emotional reparations over time.

In the meanwhile, I'm suddenly finding myself busy with several concurrent projects (when it rains, it pours pussies and poodles, folks!). I've composed a couple of tracks for an upcoming play at KLPAC (just transitional/background music), and have also been working on some music for a commercial project with a media company. So far they seem to like my stuff (though I better not speak too soon, oy!).

I'm also working on a showcase of my music which will be performed in KL middle of next month. And the biggest news of all is that I've been commissioned to write a full-length musical slated to be performed at the end of the year! It's being produced by a big church here in KL, although the subject matter isn't exactly churchy. More details to come as soon as I'm allowed to go public with this, heh! But just to whet your appetites, here's a sampling of music I've composed for it just this weekend, for a proposed dance sequence. Have a taste:

What else? Oh, just a whole lot of bits and bobs on Facebook. There was this whole brouhaha that came about when a (former) friend made a comment that I might have misinterpreted but which rubbed me the wrong way nonetheless; you can read all about it here. Then there have been some positive responses to my therapy updates, including this biggie. (And here.) Go read and entertain yourselves (and more importantly, keep up to speed on what's going on in my kooky world). Obviously these links will only work so long as I don't delete those posts. Not sure if you need to be my Facebook friend to access those pages though... but then again, if you're not my friend, you probably won't be reading this blog anyhow, arf arf.

Anyway, that's all for now. Will post more updates as soon as I'm allowed to let the cats out of the multiple musical bags. Till then!!
