Funkin' Yeti

Description
This tune was not created for the Funky Challenge but has been sitting on my hard drive, ready to go for over a year, just beggin' to be let loose. I have absolutely no idea why a Yeti: the image (or word) must have popped into my noggin when I was titling the piece. Speaking of image: do you know how difficult it is to find a photograph of a Yeti?

It is, unfortunately, loops only: a warning for the real musicians out there, but it IS kind of fun and bouncy and I thought some of you might enjoy it anyway. So get yourself out of that chair, crank the volume and shut the funk up!

Quite different from Killer Miller
that's for sure ;-) Interesting that you say you can hear Floyd in this: I can't but a tune I'm currently working on for the Space Race Challenge is definitely Floydish.
Thanks Charles.

Fun!
So what if they're loops? It's catchy and fun! The bongo/percussion section is really cool.

Loved it...
Reminds me in tone and spirit of some of those "bachelor pad" Martin Denny-type tracks that were so very popular and great fun to listen to back in the 50s and 60s. Like those tunes, this makes great use of stereo as an added fillip. When one can use loops so excellently, I defy anyone to complain. Great job and thanks for sharing it Richard (PS: I hate to break this to you, but I do believe that picture of the Yeti is actually my evil Aunt Fern from St. Paul--I'd know her anywhere! Actually, that's a very neat picture!) Michael

Michael: how nice of you
I certainly remember Martin Denny, but you aren't old enough (are you?) Whatever, I'm happy that you liked this and hope that Aunt Fern doesn't get a chance to see how I've maligned her.

Funk loops...
Ambient funk is a great description. Well done, Richard. Charles' comment cracked me up as well. Loops work fine for funk. Take care, Peter.

Who cares what went into it? Loops, strings, hooks, whatever. It has a groove, it's catchy, and strangely funky. Glad you set it free so I can download a piece of it.

that organ? gives the song an icy feel, so i can see why the Yeti image popped up. cool song, but i got more of a 'dance' feel than 'funk' but who cares, really? just listen and enjoy.
