Hey, guys!
I've been talking about how I've been feeling rather limited lately (e.g. the post just two beneath this one :/).
But by just forcing myself to try 'things', I've been able to grasp a small bit of inspiration and create something. It's essentially my shot at making old cartoon music-meets 50's T.V. ad backing music. Let me know what you guys think of the arrangement, recording/mixing and performance quality.

Cute!  It's got a little bit of everything.

Are you playing all the instruments?  Or is this done with synthesized/sampled sounds?

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

All the brass is played by me (trumpets, horns and bones). Everything else is synth/sampled.

Thanks for checking it out fellas!  :D

I'm impressed.  Have you ever thought of doing commercial work?

I sure have! (especially of late). Just focusing on finding a way to break in - doing some networking with other musicians, composers and recordists.

Great mate!

That's really really good. It's so dated, but so accurate and "cute":) Great work on the playing, and the mix of live and midi too. It's a careful science, and that aspect could improve, but I know you're working on it. They're actually good sounds that you're using.

You can pop some stuff on my site if you like. PM me if you'd like to chat.
