It looks as though I won’t be composing for a while; I’m having computer problems. I’ve decided to make the most of my break by creating an original logo and browsing the internet for album-cover ideas on other computers.
I know that neither of these things are important, but I’ve become vain since I started making my own music. I’m going to cave and want both things sooner or later, and I suppose now is as good a time as any.
I’ll create my logo. I already have concrete ideas about how I want it to look, and I don’t think producing it will require complex image-editing. If I find myself out of my depth, I can always hire someone on Fiverr to bail me out. I expect to have the final logo within a week.
My album cover is a different matter because I don’t actually know how I want it to look. Not only that, but it seems foolish to decide on an album cover when I’ve finished one track which I don’t even like that much.
I’ll wait and see what other pieces I come up with before I decide on an album cover which suits my music. I’ll just do a bit of research now to find out what my options are.
On another note, I found out that Hollywood Orchestra offers chimes, curious non-bells which sound like bells. I didn’t know that Hollywood Orchestra had them because I was looking for instruments using the word ‘bell’. Many thanks to Dallen for educating me on this topic. This means that I can finish ‘Into Winter’ without buying a bell VST.
My computer should be up and running within a week, maybe more. Time to sit back and enjoy not composing!
