Legacy for the Living (MJRF)

Description
When I first heard of the Reunion, I thought that I wouldn't submit anything. Afterall, I have only been here for 3 months... asking questions like, what is that number next to my name and why do some people have that little note next to their name and others don't. But then I thought, well I may be a newbie, but I wasn't born yesterday. So I thought about just re-submitting my first tune, Sandbox. But it didn't really say anything or address the spirit of the reunion. Then a few weeks ago Bug67 posted a forum about needing baby sounds for a project that he was doing and insisted that the sounds come from a fellow MacJammer. I had already submitted Legacy for the Living previously and I used Canned Baby Sounds (from the Mac Loop Library) and had also thought that it would be much more personal to record our new grandson Eddie B, now 5 months old. I emailed Bug67 and told him that as soon as our grandson was over, I would crank up the software and warm up the microphone. In the end we had about 13 minutes of various baby sounds, Grumpy Baby, Hungry Baby, Fed Baby and Happy Baby. I then edited that down to 6 minutes and sent him the file. It is not yet known if Bugs has used the file for his project but it greased the wheels for a remix for this song that I humbly resubmit now to the MacJam Reunion Festival.

Thanks say, I wasnt sure about the mix at first- especially the opddities that occur when converting to mp3, but I appreciate the fedback and glad you liked it. I was thinking about that too- that he will be able to hear this song throughout his life.
Thank you

I can appreciate this
I have a 4 year old and an 18 month old, so the baby sounds and little kid jibberish (along with the crying and tantrums :p) are daily events around here. I like how the music and sounds work together. Thanks for posting.

Sweet
I like the plinkity-plonkiness of this little ditty very much.
It has a nursery rhyme vibe to it mixed with something much more solid.
Very catchy and uplifting.
Normally I can't stand baby noises! But I like them here :)
Very Nice

thanks Ed, That describes a Kalimba pretty well!
thee was a time too that I couldnt stand baby noises- when they are from your own grandchild the perspective shifts slightly.

Future
The sound of the future (and perhaps a future MacJammer!). This is very cool. Lovely musical soundbed for a charming melange of wonderful noises. Very cool. Thanks for sharing this. Peace.

Thanks for the comment... I was getting a sense too of the future as the song was being built... I think that is where the word, Legacy came from... a melding of past and future.
Thanks loads

Thanks...
...For sharing this. By the time you and I are done, your grandson'll be a star! Is that a kalimba I hear? Amazing. My project also features a kalimba. It's a sound that just goes with babys.

Thanks bugs.... yes that is a Kalimba. I have a 10 year old son who was playing it up to the built in mic on the mac. My wife used that to pull up a rhythm on the guitar and the rest was pieced together... thanks for your involvement in this piece. I am looking forward to hearing your tune with my grandson's vocals. Very Interesting the co-relation of the Kalimba in our two songs.
