An Early Morning / Third Panel

Dan Poland (2010)

Even though I finally made it to sleep around 2:30am, for some bizarre reason I woke up at 6am and couldn’t get back to sleep.  So I dragged myself out of bed at 6:30, and wrote up all those blog posts that you have probably just read.

Breakfast today was more of the same as yesterday, except that I decided to go for some eggs. Apparently they make a nice little round “two fried eggs and bacon” plate that was just right, and hit the spot.  The sun is also shining today (for now, at least) and so I think I should be able to get some nicer photos of the city.

The third and final panel focused on “Creating a Soundtrack” – which isn’t necessarily referencing the idea of producing a CD release. Rather, it focused on the whole process, from conceiving of the score, to writing/orchestrating, scoring and recording, mixing and dubbing, and then (if the composer is fortunate enough), releasing a soundtrack. It was an interesting discussion, nothing controversial or anything like that, but it felt like a few of the panelists were waiting over an hour just to say the one or two things they were able to chime in on, since it was a bit of an odd collection of folks.

After the panel ended, a group of us were put on a van that would take us to one of the most bizarre places I’ve ever seen – the Alvernia Studios, about 40km outside of Krakow.
