Description
Since the LSP2 challenge is extended, here's a second entry. There is no album the track goes with really but there is a series of short movies that used this style of soundtrack score. Let's just say that the movie short for this track was in development but was never finished. Who would the composer have been? I'll admit too that the tune used near the beginning is not likely his style but the parts after it are intended to be.

I was curious about what the composer had to do in orchestrating his style of score and it's more than I would have thought. That's why I kept this short as I only wanted to spend a couple of days to post it. I read that the composer turned out one full score a week over a period of 22 years. Prolific plus.

This track is dedicated to our own talented animator of cartoonish characters Rik Berryere (aka Mr_Mordenus) creator of the MacJams City video series. I can't imagine the work it must take to create the kind of entertaining videos he does.

A second dedication goes out to Michaeljayklein because he has a great sense of humour that brings me a smile any time he puts a few yuks into one of his songs. Of course his songs crooned in a more serious tone are stellar too.

Third dedication is to Eduard aka Drakonis/IC42 who is a font of clever witticisms and punistry wherever he leaves his generous comments. Who knows, maybe his own arty animations will one day produce something on the comedic side that matches his deft wordplay.

I'm simply in LOVE with this wonderfully whimsical little piece. Your inventive/creative orchestration is so full of life and intelligent choices. What's there not to like about all of this? Absolutely nothing. I am truly amazed at the versatility demonstrated in this very short work. It is so much more than an exercise in orchestration. It is a consummate artist at the top of his imagination. Just perfect in every way. What a joyful listen this was. Wow!

Paul, as always you are so very kind and supportive of my musical journey. I can't think of a piece that is much more opposed to your lovely post of Winter Light than this one. OK maybe death metal. Still, it was fun to do as a short project and I'm really glad it struck a chord with you as well. Take care.

I've had the same problems but after 8:00 Eastern it seems to be more or less back to normal. It's interesting your comment about study because I did the same for some snippets. I never realized how much is packed into a very short passage when Stalling did his originals (and I haven't tried to go whole hog here either). Thanks for persevering and for the kind words!

Now before I say anything I must admit that I have a cheek to make any sort of a comment about this whatsoever. This sort of music is outside my own field though I do find it fascinating beyond. I would love to know more about it. I'm not going to say anything else other than I enjoyed it enormously and it makes me realize how bad some of the so called background music is today. Years ago you would even hear music like this accompanying WC Fields films and all sorts. What a wonderful post.

I think I composed this with a tongue in the opposite cheek to "The Chav Song". Certainly there's cheek in this no matter what. I wasn't sure if the Warner Bros. cartoons played outside of North America and so if they'd be recogisable at all. In any event thanks for bending an ear and having a listen.

Brilliant Doug.
I only really know of Scott Bradley and Carl Stalling of Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes fame and I'm not sure this fits with either of them.

In fact it sounds almost Bernstein like in some of the orchestral stabs.

Sounds fantastic, brilliantly inventive and great fun.

Cheers

Doug Somers said 1285 days ago (December 18th, 2013)
Perhaps you were thrown off by my red herring
The opening theme (really the only tuneful bit) is not at all in the style of the composer but after that the stabs and slides and runs should be (I hope :) ). So don't pocket your guesses quite yet.

As for Bernstein, this is the second time around someone has compared my work to his in the stab category and as a result I have been listening to his work more. May the influence is percolating into my grey matter.

Cheers Dick. It is lovely to hear from you. Be well.

Perfect Doug ... you have another calling. I think one of my fav's to this day is when Bugs took on the persona of Leopold and starts to conduct an orchestra and opera singer.... the music is brilliant. What strikes me is being able to compose as you watch the animation and finding all those beats and punches along with the animated action. I
work in animation and have had to work with music and film as a director and it is just such an impotent part of the process. Great job Doug!.... I love this

Leopold
The Bugs 'Leopold' short brilliant sketch, and in fact the art for this song is a cut from a still from that movie. I didn't know you worked in animation Stan. Or if I did it's now wiped from the old brain cells. I can appreciate now all the more the inventiveness that has to go on in providing a soundtrack that is both supportive to the action and mood while being musical. It is a fascinating challenge. If you ever need a cue two cooked up I have a virtual orchestra and chorus cooling their heels most of the time. :) Thanks for your supportive remarks and observations Stan. I really appreciate them!

I recognized the style
immediately. As others have already guessed it is Carl Stalling. You did an excellent job with this Doug. There was another composer who's music was used for a lot of the silent cartoons. Can you guess who he was? Any chance you'll do an entry as homager to him?

Silent Cartoon Composer … Hmmmm
Was it Winston Sharples by any chance? I don't' know off the top of my head but I did do a google search and his name came up with a sample of his track to "Along cams a Duck". If he is the person you have in mind I'd have to buy some saxophone samples to add to the orchestral pack I use. That said, do you know of any good sax sample packages other than Chris Heins Horns?

Thanks for the kind words Stephen. Take care.

Doug,
I am actually thinking of someone who's music Carl Stalling adapted for use with Warner Brother's animations. His name was Raymond Scott. He was a composer and inventor. Probably could have been as famous as Moog. As a matter of fact him and Bob were friends although a generation apart.

http://raymondscott.com/#7ed/blogger

Every kid will of our generation will instinctively remember "Powerhouse" and "Twilight in Turkey" from the "Looney Tunes" cartoons.

Bowman said 1285 days ago (December 18th, 2013)
Cartoons
were my first introduction to classical music and Warner Brothers vibrant and often subversive characters and skits were best of all. The music was incredible. All the shifts of moods and action must have been a heck of a challenge to a composer.

I didn't know about Stalling when I was watching them only later when music became more than a part of film for me did I find out who this genius was.

You did a great job in catching Stalling's rich and whacky style and musical inventiveness. 
Hugely entertaining piece Doug.

Welcome to my shop, let me cut your mop
Classic Warner Bros. stuff and much of it quite clever in its use of music. Much later, but also strong musically was the Animaniacs which, along with the Simpsons, gave my kids a lot of classical musical appreciation.

Can you imagine not just the intricacies of composing music like this but of conducting it? I'll bet they all had fun doing it though.

Charlie it's always meaningful to have your perspective and support. Thanks again my friend.

Mussorgsky
Cool. I'm so glad you liked this one Mike. As with the Einaudi piece, it's not my style so I can't see doing a long drawn out piece, but it was fun and educational to give a short segment a try.

For most of the samples I used the East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold. The Accordion was from a pack from the same company called Gypsy. The boings and birds are Apple sound effects, maybe from a Jam Pack or Soundtrack Pro.

Nice to hear your thoughts on the piece. Thanks!

It would be so easy to believe I am listening to a Loony Tunes (or is it Toons)soundtrack. It takes a special composer's mind to create this kind of musical art, and I find to be quite impressive - I know I couldn't create music like this. It also brings back memories of a different time, when watching magical mice, dancing broomsticks and talking ducks was cool. Thanks man - this was really fun!

Mr. Sig
It was a different time and the art has changed. As much as anything I was curious about what went into this kind of soundtrack - yes, there were some Foley sounds but otherwise action was reinforced by orchestral instruments. In some ways it was also about being able to listen to the details and understand how to combine tonalities which is useful for any kind of orchestration. Certainly I wouldn't sit down to just listen to soundtracks like this as a performance on its own, but it was fun to see what could be done with what I have.

It is great to hear from you as always and thanks for your support. It makes the journey all the more pleasant.

Leopold! Leopold? Leopold!
As soon as I saw the song art, I knew. No mistaking Bugs Bunny conducting the orchestra (loved how he broke the baton with distain, as if only rank amateurs bothered conducting an orchestra with such a... twig...)

Anyway... first off. I'm stunned to be mentioned in a dedication, and double stunned to be grouped in with two of MJ's most prolific luminaries, Drakonis and MJK. These guys define the very essence of MJ's charm and friendly support, not to mention extraordinary artistic accomplishment. Me... I show up once in a while when life lets me, and am pleased that the bartender even remembers me.

Second... this is simply magnificent. Pulling this kind of orchestration off well is no easy thing, and your work here simply reminds me how it just isn't done anymore. Danny Elfman once wrote, in reference to the music and voices of the Simpsons, that as long as the voices and music were top-rate, the limited visual animation would not really be noticed. He's quite right. I'm reminded of the original Charlie Brown Christmas-very, very limited animation (quite deliberate, in order to mirror the pure 2D world of the comic strip) but the careful attention to the character voices and now-legendary jazz soundtrack sweep everything to the stars.

Of course, the Warner Bros. toons were not limited in any way in the visuals dept, (at least not in the 30s-40s, when the good stuff was in its prime) and the poetry between those brilliant 24-fps lunatic visions and intricate musical soundtracks was the way it was done.

Take a big bow here, Doug. I'm giving you a standing ovation.

Leopold
That toon was genius stuff. Of course that is a favourite of mine and so I HAD to include enough of the still to make it recognizable without giving it all away. And you guessed it too (no surprise).

I'm really glad you like this one. I thought you might (hence the title of the piece). The animation you mention from the heyday was also top notch - it's incredible to think of how animators could imagine the exaggerated physics of movement and composers the corresponding sounds made using regular instruments - all out of thin air as it were. As to Charlie Brown and the Vince Guaraldi tracks that stuff was one of my first ever records as a young kid and it still influences me now.

Rik you are one of the people who have done so much for this community I thought you (and MJK and Drak) should have a piece in your collective honour - and as Yosemite Sam might have said about me "Well I'll be… the critter went and done it!"

Thanks for your enthusiastic and kind support sir.

Oh, and the bartender still remembers you Rik. No doubt about that.

Sergei Prokofiev, is that you?
Very nicely done… definitely captures the Warner Bros "signature" sound. My 2-ton name drop is both tongue-in-cheek and intentional, in that these cartoon themes often sounded to me like their style was HEAVILY influenced by the Big 5 (Russians)… you have a bit of Shostakovitch and Stravinsky in there too. Very well crafted… even though these are fun flecks of fluff themes, you wove them into a warmly whimsical blanket of cohesive silliness. You're Hired! :-)

I had just typed a long reply to your gracious note and when I hit send the site went down and all was lost. But not the memories. Let's see what I can reconstruct.

That's quite a compliment to even be mentioned in the same sentence as some of the BIG 5. As usual, you are too kind. Now that you mention it, the Warner Toon music does seem to have their influence. Good call, I hadn't noticed it before.

And as to the warmly whimsical Warner blanket of silliness I can only say that the fun flecks of fluffy fits of festooned philharmonic frolic and figurative feathered fantasy first found following Friday's fashionable and fastidious eFFort are philosophically fomented and fostered in feisty folds and faraway furrows filled physically from facts and figures philanthropically financed and furtively fuelled from felled figs, fantasy fruits and flax.

Thanks for your longtime support and encouragement Edouard, and not a little mirth, merrymaking and word play. Glad to be hired! Take care sir.

Hi Doug...
Sorry I'm late to comment. I heard the piece when it was first uploaded but life took over before I had time to comment. I knew the composer you were referring to without knowing his name. I Googled it and my info/your clues/music put it all together.

This is a wonderful piece of cartoon incidental music. Both my father and I loved the cartoons. The music I appreciated much later.

This is a classic mix and arrangement.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and that 2014 brings all you wish for.

Take care.

What's a cartoon without sound effects. What I learned with this piece is that the whole orchestra can emulate a sound effect if you think about the combination of notes as 'just' sounds (which it is but I never really looked into what Carl Stalling was actually doing with his score before this).
