Blimp is up and away

Ryan Youen's Blimp is now on You Tube being played by the Auckland Symphonia. Runs about three minutes.

Having been doing quite a bit of orchestrating of the music for Grimhilda! in recent weeks I know just how long it takes to orchestrate even a couple of minutes of music - and the number of instruments involved in my pit orchestra won't be as large as this group, by any means. Haven't quite got to the point of having dark circles under my eyes as yet, since I can work in the daytime (and not have to try and fit the music around a forty-hour working week doing something unrelated), but I suspect by the time the show is starting to get into production there may be not only dark circles but bags under the eyes as well.
