Two short offerings

I've turned my focus to short recordings right now, either because my output has been so low over the summer, or because there is very little of it left. I still have a few longer recordings in progress, but don't want to rush them.



This is a short, simple and comical recording for branding purposes. I had projects for children in mind. It's actually about 5 seconds with two seconds for the audio tail, and features bassoon, clarinet, xylophone , tuba, and glockenspiel. A lot of instruments in 5 seconds, but it's still simple. Call it a 5 second lesson in tone quality.



This is another short recording for branding purposes. Six seconds of relaxing strings and piano with a cymbal swell for a little understated drama. It's relaxing and settling, like coming back home at the end of a trip. A period for the end of your sentence.

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.

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.
