August Week 3 Scorecard

Struck out on both counts. They rejected both "Small Island" and "On Target", leaving me with a summer score of 9/16. Last summer I got in 26/40. Huge drop in the number of submissions, but I could point out that the bulk of this summer's songs were much longer. I'm still going to end the summer with half the submissions of the year before. They'll sell for a lot more money, but only time will tell if it's the right approach.

Small Island



A 40 second audio clip meant to bring to mind walking on a beach in the Caribbean. Personally, I liked St. John. It was a lot less commercial and more unspoiled.

On Target



This is a short track for a corporate motivation video. Just over a minute long including the fade out. Ukulele, bells, bass, claps, and strings.

August Week 2 Scorecard

Short and sweet. Only one submission last week due to a trip to Pgh. "Simple Children's Theme" was rejected, and the scorecard now stands at 9/14.

Simple Children's Theme

This is a short, simple children's theme. Not that the children are simple - the children are brilliant, and have great taste in music.

End of July Scorecard

Last weeks submissions have all cleared the queue, and I got 2 out of 3 accepted. The current scorecard is 9/13. For the record, AudioJungle accepted "Medieval Nocturne" and "How It's Done," but rejected "Mallet Folk Loop."
Comments

Mallet Folk Loop

A generic renaissance/medieval folk loop from an old world country that doesn't exist. It uses a marimba/kalimba, celtic hammered dulcimer, cello, hand drum, and cymbals. It's lilting, merry, and has a contrasting B section in a minor key. All this in a short file that loops perfectly at 36 seconds, with a cymbal swell to masque the transition.



Comments

Medieval Nocturn

A simple medieval/renaissance lute melody written as a nocturn. Great background music for that moonlight walk around the parapets with your lord of lady.

Comments

How It's Done

A little background music for corporate demonstration videos. An indeterminate genre, but a spunky and cheerful little tune.

Last Week's Scorecard

Songs that made the cut were "There is a Fountain" and "Comic Tedium." "Spaghetti Western" and "Hybrid Funk" were both cut. The summer scorecard now stands at 7/10.

The frustrating thing is that I worked on "Hybrid Funk" for hours, but tossed together "Comic Tedium" in about 30 minutes. Just goes to show that you never know what they are going to think is "marketable." I worked for hours on the Middle Eastern song, too. I guess that only time will tell which ones people think are worth buying. Who knows what next year's top 3 will be.
