Tick tock, tick tock
I hate waiting for deliveries of exciting, much-anticipated items. This happened a few weeks ago when I was waiting for my new computer, and it’s happening again as I wait for the new printer. I just keep refreshing the FedEx tracking page, hoping to see, “Status: Parking truck on 69th Street.”
I put a new sound file on the site a few days ago. It’s music I wrote for a little internet ad for MetLife. (Much thanks to The Abacus for securing that unusual gig.) It’s short & sweet and doesn’t do much, but it shows off some pretty fantastic guitar samples from the Hans Zimmer Guitar Collection.
It’s fun writing little 60-second tunes. I would love to write music for commercials, partially because it’s fun and a lot easier to write a 30-second “tune” than a 15-minute “piece,” and partially because the money is appealing.
And money is fun because it lets you buy treats.
