Conducted a recording session for Ben Taylor's "At Which Point" for wind symphony tonight. What a great piece! I hope the recording came out well... please... My conducting is getting so sloppy... I can't believe it---I don't wanna believe it. I am so frustrated. So many things frustrate me lately. Yes, I had five hours to prepare it, but it really shouldn't be an excuse to be sloppy about keeping tempo---SO BAD---I can't believe this! Any musician can beat a steady quarter=160 tempo. I really don't wanna screw up the recording of a good friend's. I am glad though, I took the task and helped him out, so that he at least gets a recording. And, I get to realize how sloppy I am...
