Hello, welcome to this music pack of Fun and Playful tracks!
Snakes and Ladders Whether it’s a beanstalk, a tree, a rope, a ladder…children just love to climb things! Up we go and then oops, down we go again. This playful, happy, jolly childlike theme keeps on rising up and up until….weeee back to the start again and try once more. It features a fun, silly melody that keeps going through different keys. It plays out on the vibraphone, glockenspiel and old cheesy organ with acoustic bass, piano and drums providing the background. I really enjoyed writing this, it sounds a bit like a fairground ride on the waltzers or a carousel. Like an old music hall theatre organ treat. I hope it makes somebody smile. It is cheerful and the stepwise, playful nature gives it a sense of perpetual, joyful motion that should put a sunny shine on a kid’s face. Files included: Main theme 3:23 Loop version 1:04 (wav)
Toy Soldiers War! What is it good for? Absolutely Nothing…Unless of course you are children in which case it’s immense fun! Rat tat tat tat… playing with toy soldiers. With friends in the park, at school. Pretending to fight battles and win the day! Parachuting commandos in to daring, exciting missions behind enemy lines in the bathtub, splashing about. Fighting against the odds, re-enacting the American Civil war on the kitchen table or in front of the telly with a bag of sweets and fizzy pop. Well, these are my childhood memories, playing and having a great time, growing up with my collection of seasoned, plastic veterans…This piece follows a simple AB structure and is quite unobtrusive to allow for voice over work etc.. It would be great for children’s programming, cartoons or perhaps advertising uses. Happy Days! Files included: 1. Main File with Fade 2:00 2. Main File for Looping (no fade) 1:59 (wav)
Ants vs Robots Hear the scuttling, scampering ants swarm to take on the computerised silicon wizardry of the clever robots. This is a fast paced, frenzy of technological circuitry against nature’s colonial wizards. Well, something like that anyway. It’s a fun, short, energetic piece ideally suited for games or children’s programming. Files included: Main Theme with fade: 1:00 Loop version: 0:26 (wav)
Creepy Crabs Here come those crusty creepy crustaceans, snipping and snapping with their claws. Scuttling along on the beach, in the rock pools and hiding in the seaweed! This is a short piece, designed as background music for children’s programming such as cartoons or educational television. It could be used in other ways I am sure. I have kept it really simple and unobtrusive to make it ideal for voiceover use. Featuring orchestral pizzicato (pizz) instrumentation, this style of music is very useful for a variety of projects including cooking and shopping channel programming. Files included: Main tune with fade: 1:00 Loop Version: 0:15 (wav)
