Description
I was waiting for my table at Grandma's Restaurant in Hangzhou. This is the announcement that tells people that their table is ready. It seems to say "Number A112! Grandma's calling! Dinner's ready!"

I love the beat, too.
Is that really the pitch at which the announcement is made? Cool way to mix it up with the music.

pitch
Yep, no shifting. Kinda annoying, not? The idea is to take you back to your childhood when grandma fed you comfort food. Hence the childish voice.

Grandma's calling!
Pretty funny! Like the beat and the synth sound is pretty cool sounding. What synth are you using? The recorded announcement makes it slightly bizarre ... too short ... would have liked to hear it develop into something more but I think it probably has more impact short and to the point. Very funtastic!

Short and fun
All synths are U-He ACE, one of the better analog emulations. The bass is from Trillian.

Happy beats. Japanese voices sound so horribly out of pitch to me, I wonder how they hear it?

Yes, "Grandma's" food was excellent. Most of it was Shanghai style, which means that it has some natural sweetness, for instance there were figs prepared some interesting way. None of the food I had in China remotely resembled what you find in Chinese restaurants in the US.

come back for another listen. Lovely, quirky synth sounds, and the bass is terrific. I'd love to hear a much longer version actually!

This
just makes me hungry. I know I'd miss my number being called, though. Creative way to take your inspiration and make an upbeat piece of music.
