Description
My entry for round two of Loop It or Lose It. I believe I followed the rules this time, although as usual the mix is kind of rough.

The title pretty much says it all about this piece, I think. I don't even know what category to put it in...polka, maybe?

how cute
Love the visualization of this. This would be so outstanding for a film on penguins. I really adore the pic as well.

Nice job, I always know I am in for a musical treat when Magritte posts a new one!

Thanks for the listen!

First off, great title!
OMG! How did you hear "oom-pa" in that loop! How great is this!

This could be dropped right into a soundtrack - maybe one of the old Danny Kaye movies. Charming and nostalgic. The fife was a great choice, as was the ratchet. I don't know how you conceived this approach, but you really nailed it!

deputydoofy stole the title for his entry. Funny while very smart exercice. I love the delicate work on percussions and the mischievious use of the flute. Quel talent !

Outstanding!
I am SO bummed that downloads are disabled at the moment. This would have immediately gone right on the Christmas playlist that's playing in my living room upstairs!

Excellent, fun, wonderful and I'd mention Danny Kaye, too, but he makes me feel swoony and I'm not that lucid when it comes to him. This reminds me of the Doll on a Music Box sequence in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which is one of my favorite scenes in any movie, ever.

Congrats on such a great job and happy piece of music.

Very cute fun piece
You did such a good job with this. It's really sweet and very upbeat. It reminds me of an old Walt Disney cartoon, where the toys all march into Santa's sack. I gotta pull that out one of these days. Great choices for instrumentation and tempo.

Just imagine
being at the circus or a carnival and watching a team of penguins waddling around in parade formation. This is what your piece did for me. Wonderful!

God bless,

Tres Magritte-fique!
As always, your talented creations put a smile on my face... really splendid way of contorting the loop into a delightful "toy-suite". It's actually tough to orchestrate something like this to sound cute and toy-ish, you did a brilliant job here! Brava!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks everyone!
I'm so glad you enjoyed the piece. It was a lot of fun to put together after two failed concepts. Basically I wanted to do something very different from my LIOLI #1 entry, and also something that wasn't immediately obvious from the loop itself. That led me to "happy" and "bells." Which, of course, led to penguins, as do most things eventually.

LIOLI is fast becoming my favorite thing to participate in at MacJams. Thank you all for your entertaining and very kind comments on my entry.

Ha!
That picture really goes with the song. Why, it sounds like cartoony little goofball creatures having a grand ol' time. I like it!

Fantastic
Excellent little tune brilliantly realised - and to think it sprung from one fairly dodgy loop.

Seriously well done

on the caroussel
I feel like on a big caroussel... white wooden horses going up and down, while slowly turning round and round. Such a fun tune. You took me back to my childhood...

Do you?

Yes!
I ADORE Penguin Cafe Orchestra! I was so sad that Simon Jeffes died so young. "Music for a Found Harmonium" may be my favorite piece of music ever.

Past LIfe
I have to know something. Were you a carousel operator in your past life or something? This is absolutely cute and full of youthful energy. But, unfortunately, as with some of your other songs, it is WAY TOO SHORT. That's actually a compliment. We want to hear more of this. I was just about to leap from my chair and do my little penguin jig, when the music suddenly stopped. I disagree with you, by the way: I think the mix is perfect right where it's at. You have a real knack for this kind of music. I'll look forward to hearing more stuff like this from you.

Hi all -- I'm back, to some extent. Having moved from the middle of Los Angeles to a nice quiet city in Orange County, I've been rediscovering some of my old hobbies, and making music is one of them. Hope to get more involved again soon! *** ... [see more]
