Description
My son, Ryan is a videographer and he was working for a toy company as one of the editors. He was getting tired of hearing the same song over and over and so he asked them if they were looking for new material. They were and so I created this little song. Originally it was one minute long but I thought I could condense it to :30. The toy company has a line of farm and train toys that they did not have music for yet so I created it for that side of their product line. The guy in charge of music (who is not a musician by the way) goes with first impressions as to whether or not a song will work. He commented that my song was something that you might hear at a dinner theater..... he he... nice. Anyway. They did not buy the song so you get to hear it instead. Everyone say... YAY !!!!

Very true, Andy. So often, our trash is their treasure, and unfortunately, vice versa.

Anyway, I liked it!

I like it too! This is kinda jazz for children. That guy was not prepared for that. You were so ahead of his time (I bet you still are).

dude
all your hard work isn't gone to waste -- I appreciate it! I've had stuff rejected as well. it hurts. I am still traumatized years later. only thing is, nothing I did was ever this good! imagine if I did something this good, and had it rejected -- why, with my fragile ego, I'd probably go suicidal! the idea! ;-O

Plasticine - lol, this reminds me of when I was a kid. you know those plastic models we would buy and put them together with what we called airplane glue? Well in the package was a little base that you could attach to your plane and it would look like it was in flight. If you put those little plastic domes on the floor and stomped on it with your foot. It would shatter in a million pieces and had the greatest crunch sensation. It was so satisfying,,,, uh... plasticine... ya.....

YAY!!
Well, if it's any consolation, a lot of kids choke on farm toys. It's good that your music won't be associated with the tragic loss of a child.

I personally like the tune and will always think of this song as something to listen to while playing with bigger toys not designed to hurt children.

LOL!

Nice piece of music here, great tone on the sax! Can you play blues? I've got an uptempo (170 BPM) swing blues I'm working on, key is Bb which I think is a good sax key?

Short and complex
Cool cool little vibe. I kind of agree with what the music guy said. This is too smart and jazzy for them. I mean that as a sincere compliment, would love to hear the full blown version or hear this extended into a complete song with piano, sax etc taking turns at the solos.

i personally think this would have added a little class to their advertising. But as kicbal stated, you have to count on their intelligence level--which is prob pretty average. their loss. any way to hear what they're using now? sure it sux. :]
