Description
from a great disaster comes great joy. a surprise layoff of 134 engineers suddenly offered me some free time to explore the garageband smart-instruments on my iPad, and to extract and extend the experiment on my mac, before exploring new job opportunities. a beautifully simple chord progression, G-G-Dm-C, creates a smile on my square lips. it is hoped that this short synthesizer interlude gives you a smile as well, as i brush off this 14-year old résumé and resume my job search.

joy
it is very joyful. too short though, there's lots of potential to build a full song out of this. (hmmm... that seems symbolic somehow.)

make music, it helps one's state of mind.

thanks

a cymbal for your thoughts
i have been listening to a lot of music lately (brahms and liszt, of all people), and i think their music pushed me to do this simple thing. it is kind of you to suggest there's potential here, and i shall take on the challenge to build on these humble beginnings, and make more music. thank you for listening as always.

i needed some of these pent-up notes to escape... but just a few. I will save up more soon, but need to finish up the resume and see what i can find.

Hope
This piece is about as major sounding as they come. The sounds of our hero looking fearlessly ahead, breathlessly awaiting what the future will bring.

Sorry to hear about your sudden embarking on a job search. Best wishes!

Gyros are made, not born
I discovered that while working at a Greek Deli :-) However, I am hoping to avoid the food services industry, and write some Mac software again, that will be nice. Thank you for the quick listen and note and vote.

eek... what have you done? a staccato yves-fave? if you do indeed like it so, then i must revisit it and expand the interlude into a true piece of music. stay tuned to AM 440, when next week's episode is... (a secret.)

Sorry about the layoff; but this is quite the joyous short bit. Definitely fodder to build on that you could share with your former cow-orkers to cheer them up.

Lovely cocktail of joyful synth melodies, well shaken/stirred (and what usually happens with a good one: ends far too quickly!).

Best wishes.

Too short.... I was on another page surfing as I listened to this, and I was disappointed when it stopped. Had to come and make sure nothing was wrong. So I was sorry when it stopped.
