Hi all, hope this time will have some comments/critique...
Last time my post was disregarded!
I do not take any offense...
Take your time, deadline is June 16th
Most of all instruments are live...
Recorded at home with care!



PERCUSSION-BASED INSTRUMENTAL TRACKS for TV COMMERCIALS and TRAILERS CUES are needed by a successful, globally distributed Music Library that has a great track record of cool placements in Films, TV shows, and TV Commercials. They’re looking for Percussion-based Cues that can range from quirky and mischievous, to playful, sneaky, or quizzical sounding. Please listen to the following references to get in the stylistic wheelhouse of what they’re looking for:

Activia Percussion Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3ufOOkbR_8

Boulevard Brewing TV Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNlfYcn-BS4

Quicksilver TV Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70y-TIubx7o

Please submit rhythmically engaging pieces that are primarily driven by percussive elements, including (but not limited to) Stomps, Kicks, Claps, Slaps, Snaps, Taps, and Bangs. You can send them World/Ethnic percussion pieces, Marching/Drumline pieces, Mechanical/Industrial-sounding pieces, pieces that are created using pots, pans, forks, and knives, or organic, woodsy-sounding pieces with drums, gourds, hollowed out logs, etc. Use your imagination and send them Percussive Instrumentals that really punch through and feel like they’d have a lot of impact in a TV commercial (or possibly in a Film Trailer.)

Be careful to stick to just one emotion and pattern throughout your piece. Don’t compose different “scenes.” Possible emotions, feelings, and vibes: Uplifting, energetic, action-oriented, tension-based, foreboding, etc. Different types of Tracks for different applications!

Note: You can include minimal instrumentation or you can send Tracks that ONLY have percussion. If you add instruments, please remember that more is less! Resist the urge to throw in the kitchen sink!!

Your track is recorded nicely, but needs more contrast. It is too repetitive in my opinion.

If you listen to the a la's they have more changes, making them more interesting.


Hope this helps you.

Hi Pierre. I agree with Jeff with regards to the first 1 minute. Then at 1:15 more change is coming, but I think (and maybe that is also what Jeff meant) this change should possibly come much earlier, and maybe more often, in particular given that the references all only lasted about 30 seconds. So, more change, and earlier on, but I don't see why you would not be able to pull that off. Production quality seems good to me, but I am no pro. Tom

I'd build it more. Right now it sounds like a bed track for something else. The listing gives you what they're looking for (stomps, kicks, claps, snaps, etc). so I'd some of those in.
