This is a bouncy light orchestral jazz/pop track stereotypically used for 40's and 50's advertisements. It's light, fun, kitschy, and believe it or not, incredibly challenging to produce. I spent weeks steeping my ears in the work of Les Baxter, Heinz Kiessling, Leroy Anderson, and Laurie Johnson in order to learn the ins and outs of kitsch string arrangement/orchestration. It's pretty dense stuff for what ends up ultimately being a musical joke.

I've made a video to go along with this. Animation was coded from scratch in Java.

That Sounded Like The TV Commercial

Fitting for any infomercial ever!

Amazing!!!!!

Man, it really reminds me of those old commercials where you could get decoder rings and various toys in the mail if you send enough cereal boxtops and stuff like that. This is great! Makes me feel like a kid again.

sleepFacingWest responds:

Thanks! That's exactly the vibe I was going for :)

This is really well written, you really captured the sound you were going for I think! There were times where I could have gone with less reverb, but nice mix overall

sleepFacingWest responds:

Thanks! I'm glad you mentioned the reverb. It was something I went back and forth on for awhile so this confirms some of my misgivings.
