WISE - Long Term Plans

What is absolutely and undeniably crucial to the success of a 16 week long project? Long-term planning.

  • Current: Code Red Robot Trailer music, due 2/22.
  • 2/22 - 2/27: Adapt robot trailer music for TwtrSymphony, due 3/1
  • (2/28 - 3/2): out of town
  • 3/3 - 3/6: Research chords and progressions
  • 3/7 - 3/9: Research compositional techniques
  • 3/10 - 3/16: Ear training
  • 3/17 - 3/23: Composing - brainstorm
  • 3/24 - 4/2: Composing - structure
  • (3/28 - 3/30): out of town
  • 4/3 - 4/9: Composing - orchestrate
  • 4/10 - 4/13: Composing - revise
  • 4/14 - 4/15: Composing - prepare parts

And that's the plan right up until the four weeks of rehearsal. I have yet to solidify the details of the rehearsals with the orchestra, not to mention preparing for the final presentation that concludes my project. Those details will come later, but for now, this plan should keep me on task without much problem, barring unexpected circumstances.
