ASCAP I Create Music Expo 2013

It is year 3 of the Expo, and it honestly took me a while to get in to it. I did meet some really cool people, and ran into some old friends.

It was just a whirlwind of inspiration, desperate frenetic craziness and a combination of hot messes and ridiculous talent, people who need to consider new careers, and people who will be on the national stage any second.

I feel that I learned a lot, both about myself and the industry. But as inspiring as it was, I have to say that I often feel that kind of inspiration. Especially lately. And I'm not sure if my experience was either tamped down overall, or if my threshold for inspiration has been raised to a more consistent level.

Now it is Monday. Now what?

I need to go through the business cards, the receipts, my brain, and figure out what is what. After an exhausting frenzy of energy, what is the takeaway? I'll tell you when I figure it out. I'm still riding the high.

I do have a three minute orchestra piece to compose, orchestrate and copy by the end of the week, so it there is little time for rest. More on that opportunity later.
