Track 22: Reflections by The Narrator
Though things arenít entirely over for me with this project (due to some more tracking for Team Dwoz), itís time to bring this narrative to a close.
In the end, I hope that youíve enjoyed reading my ramblings about this round of CAPE. For what itís worth, Iíve had a great time writing itÖ when I could get around to doing so, of course.
This all came down to planning and a lack of time. Frankly, I had expected things to run a bit more smoothly on Team Dwoz, but the lack of activity there freed up to devote the time necessary to Team Azraphael, where I may have underestimated what needed to be done.
The biggest lesson I learned, therefore, was to be more careful about how much I commit to in the future. I honestly thought I could juggle it all, but now I feel like I really let this journal slide. I take most of the blame for that, but you have to admit that itís kind of hard to write something interesting when one team is gelling perfectly well with no drama, and the other team simply isnít doing much of anything.
Iíd do all of it again, except the writingÖ at least not on a real-time-ish basis. Iíve had a blast producing, and Iím sure I will have a blast performing for Team Dwoz. Though this was my first CAPE mix, I think I came through it alive, and would probably mix again for CAPE in the future.
But this writing stuff? Harder, and far more time consuming, than it looks.
So here we are at the end, and, much like the rest of Three Sided Story, thereís no big bang, no sparkly finish. And you know what? Thatís perfectly okay, and in my mind reflects something great about this place.
I mean, listen to these songs and really think about it. In most (if not all) cases, what youíre listening to was put together by people that have never met one another, much less played music together in the same room.
Now consider the fact that everything about this event, from top to bottom, is done on a volunteer basis. So, when you take all the rules, regulations, deadlines, spats and hissy fits out of it, in the end itís always been about the music. Hell, even the fights are typically about specific artistic points.
Oddly enough, thereís not that many music sites out there on the internet that can really put their proverbial money where their mouths are. The Womb is one of them.
We donít just talk about music, we create it. And, as always, itís been an honour to be part of that.
