This is a bouncy light orchestral jazz/pop track stereotypically used for 40's and 50's advertisements. It's light, fun, and 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.

Some of the flourishes in the woodwinds might be a bit distracting depending on the context of your film/game, but they're so idiomatic I couldn't bring myself to render a version without them. If it ends up being a problem, contact me and we can work something out.

This track includes the basics. I've rendered out full versions of the track as well as split intro/loop formats, and included a stinger in case you need to edit an ending into the middle. As always, uncompressed .wav are included along with 320kbps .mp3 files.

As with all the things posted here, this is freely available for use in games and/or animation projects. It also works as a sort of demo of my style and abilities. I’m actively looking for new gigs, so if you enjoy anything here please get in touch to discuss some custom work.

I’ve provided separate intro/loop files for ease of editing. If you would like to use this free loop, please message me for attribution requirements.

This track was created for a game called Corgi Run. They wanted an upbeat track for the stats screen that would display when you successfully completed a level. They really wanted to use the 16-bit sound world exemplified in classic Super Nintendo gamesof the 90’s. As it turns out, it’s pretty difficult to emulate this sound using modern tools. It was a good exercise in sound design to make the instruments sound “more realistic” than classic 8bit, but not good enough to sound real.
