Positive Vibe FWD

Post by karlhourigan » Tue Feb 13, 2018 9:31 pm

Got a forward on my track "Happy Suburb" https://soundcloud.com/karl-hourigan/happy-suburb

POSITIVE, OPTIMISTIC INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films, countless TV Shows, and TV Commercials. They’re looking for Mid­to­Up Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references The Music Library gave us: Song/Instrumental Reference 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_2PNXr1TWU Song/Instrumental Reference 2:
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NLLzYZt42c&t=38s Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJSoiIofews&t=64s Please submit contemporary sounding Instrumental Cues with a cheerful, optimistic, and positive feel, sound, and vibe. Your Instrumentation can be solely acoustic, or a combination of acoustic and electric instruments, as long as the overall production is solid from top to bottom. Be sure to stick with one mood and motif from beginning to end, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to add dynamics and a sense of forward momentum. Any organic/acoustic instrumentation you use should sound indistinguishable from the real thing! Anything that is obviously synthetic sounding or MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch Quoting the Company: “You’d be smart to not include a prominent melody. Instead give it a nice motif that gives a sense of melody without fully including a melody that sounds like what a vocal part might do. Touches of melody work better for this type of instrumental.” All submissions should be around Two-Minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned endings.

Nice work Karl.
I like the repeating modulation and return as a way to keep the track from feeling static.
Congratulations on the forward.

Nice work. That's a great example of a simple repetitive motif but keeping it moving with simple additions.
