new jingle-inspired piece
Hello! First post here, I have something slightly unusual—I'm a composer in Los Angeles, and recently I wrote a new piece that adopts the aesthetic of radio jingles. While writing the piece, I lurked on these boards rather extensively, and the collections everyone has shared were an incredible resource. I thought I should share the recording—it's a little over the top, but some of you may find it interesting.
Included a small note of appreciation for jinglemad in the score. The piece has been performed once (it was commissioned by a percussion ensemble and vocalist in Montreal), and they're planning to perform it again in the summer. I'm of the opinion (which seems widely held, here) that jingles have a unique and pretty amazing sound, and I think it's unexplored in contemporary composition.
Thanks for maintaining such an interesting site!
