When Your Heart Runs Out Of Time (Reprise)

‘I Can’t Help It’ – Bananarama


The Sound Technician is researched further.  A set of notes is produced and written up by Ritcherd + Lee-Anne.  A presentation piece, which we will read to the group, is produced.


This evening, I spent two hours mixing and producing a 3-minute soundtrack demo cassette for the ‘Apparition Scene’, using three tape recorders for tomorrow’s presentation.  The soundtrack is a mixture of records from my own personal collection.  I mixed two ‘shock opera’ tracks by Diamanda Galas together, overlaid some rain + thunder sound effects, and added some other special sounds.  As an in-joke, I ‘underlaid’ some operatic cries of ‘O, Macbeth!’ from the VERDI OPERA.


Tonight, I went out with Miranda and we made beautiful love, but I think she’s getting fed up at not seeing me as much as before, now I’m back at College.
