life of a percussionist, part two {this could get bloody}


this morning i watched 
as the fruits of yesterday's labors 
shattered before my eyes
with each and just about every stroke.

{that really wasn't supposed to happen}


and somehow michael's tile made it out alive.
maybe that's what they teach grad students.

and,
shield yer eyes for the next one...

there was a casualty 
after the second run through.
cause of casualty: the friendly 2ft x 1ft aluminum sheet.
a.k.a.
thunder sheet.

don't worry about it, though, i'm a tough cookie.

stage manager david ran to the rescue...

david: i'm gonna spray it
me: NOOOO IT'S GONNA STING
david: it's not gonna sting
me:YESSS IT'S GONNA STING
david: i promise it's not going to sting
sprays it i wince i scream i cry... and then it didn't sting


and orchestra manager justin taped the edges of thunder sheet so that it wouldn't happen again.
that's him lurking in the background. 
{hi justin, please read my blog}

the rest of the rehearsal...
was actually quite successful. 
i haven't the slightest idea what is happening with the electronixa 
but my part is fun,
it involves scraping metal things against metal things
and then dropping metal things
and shaking metal things
and hopefully not bleeding anymore about metal things.

but if i may plug it again,
come to 
it starts thursday,
and eez going to be soopa tight.


xoxo

Ahhh one of my worst irrational fears is getting cut by metal things! I'm glad you're okay. I wish I could come see you perform, but sadly FL and NYC are not too close.
