Amazon Loop

This rhythmic loop uses mallet and mixed percussion to provide a musical background for the amazon, rain forests, or jungles in general. It has a real tribal feel. No sound effects, just a musical backdrop for you to add your own.

This is submission #3 for week #8.

Hammered Electronic Loop

This gritty loop features a dirty, distorted electric piano backed by a processed hammered dulcimer, synth bass and acoustic percussion. It has a nice drive to it, but feels mid-tempo in spite of the quick metronome marking of 160.

I was looking for a nice combination of distorted and clean to give this loop a dirty sort of drive without being overly muddy. This song is submission #2 of week 8.

Scattered Electronic Loop

This is an electronic loop that uses a gated, scattered electronic sequence background with a interesting, quacky sort of synth lead. The background percussion is acoustic and uses a latin rhythm pattern, although it doesn't feel very latin in the context of the arrangement.

The overall mood is tense and precise. I envision it as background music for a game that requires intense concentration. At 96 BPM, the tempo isn't rushed, but it feels strained and stressed anyway.

The song makes a perfect loop at 30 seconds. This is song #1 for week #8.

Week 7 Scorecard

Got 3/5 approved this week, bringing the summer total up to 22/32.

The ones making it in were the Jazz Combo Loop, the Light Broadcast Intro, and the Rough Edge Loop - that's right, the one I was pretty sure wasn't going to make the cut because it didn't seem very "commercial". The ones that made the cut were the two that I actually thought were the most promising of the lot, the Happy Pop loop and my Mellow Jazz song. The mellow jazz one kind of hurt. I liked that one. I guess the reviewer didn't.

No matter, I'm working on a fresh batch for week #7, and I'm on track to have 175 by September. I already have 170 in, so let's hope I can keep getting 3/5 approved a week.

Caving

Just for the record, I'm making my "Rough Edge Loop" my 5th submission for week 7. It's been rainy and miserable for several days and I'm afraid my arthritis is really letting me know it. My joints are screaming, and I the usual half-dozen ideas I usually have started by now just aren't there this time around. I will be starting monday morning with nothing in the works.

I'm not sure they'll see commercial value in it, but I'm tossing it in anyway to make my quota. Sometimes they reject things I think would do very well, so maybe this week they'll take one that I'm uncertain of. Either way, it prevents me from hustling and rushing something in order to make my self-imposed quota. I'd rather get a clean start tomorrow morning with a new set of 5 for week #8.

Every "back-to-school" flier that shows up on our doorstep is reminding me that I'm fast running out of weeks. The good news is that I'm up to 170 items up for sale on Audio Jungle, and only five from my summer goal. It's looking more and more like I'm gonna get there.

Mellow Jazz

This relaxing mellow jazz tune features electric piano, upright bass, acoustic guitar and drums. It's down tempo, smooth, and soothing. I was looking for something to gently slow people down and relieve them of stress. Song number 4 of week 7.

Happy Pop Loop

The name says it all. This one is a 30 second loop featuring acoustic guitar and pizzicato strings. It's bright, cheerful, upbeat, and just the sort of background music someone out there needs to provide a little frame for a discussion of the next product we all desperately need, without even knowing it yet.

This one is my 3rd submission for week #7.

Light Broadcast Intro

This is a short theme song (15 seconds) that I wrote for podcast/broadcast audio projects. Light, cheerful and positive, I had sincere, but less weighty projects in mind when I did this one. This one is my second submission for week #7.

Jazz Combo Groove Loop

This is a 44 second grooving little jazz loop using a traditional small jazz combo. Electric Piano, Bass, Vibes and Drums. This one makes a nice smooth loop at 44 seconds. A little background music for broadcast purposes - fade out at your leisure.
