High, High, High is a different style than what I usually listen to or work with, so it was an excellent learning opportunity. I took drafts to a piano much more frequently than I did for Resuscitated Hope (which was almost never), so the final product has less awkward voice leading and is closer to my personal playing ability (after much practice). I smudged the rhythm of the melody around in places for easier performance. A specific example is in measure 5: The original recording here is syncopated on the 16th notes, which feels very natural when singing. On the piano however, I thought it made things unnecessarily busy, and caused the difficulty to exceed my intentions.
I was hoping to have an actual piano recording of this finished before I go to Otakon. I leave for Otakon tomorrow -- so much for that. Now my goal shall be to have a recording done by time I leave for graduate school.
