Writing the Score

the_golden_glows_37_1500As we go along, Nel will become increasingly time consumed by other projects. To anticipate much of this, she wrote scores to the tunes she developed over the last few months: ‘The Chrysanthemum Vow’, ‘The Carp of My Dreams’, ‘On Poverty and Wealth’ and ‘The Serpent’s Lust’. Scores and charts are the roadmaps of the live musician. Although many of the songs are not in their final structure, most of them missing a melody or a lyric, these scores are essential at rehearsal stage.
