    Laying the Foundation to Life (Music for a Commercial)

    Hey guys, I've been asked to write a commercial for a school. The commercial will be called "Laying the Foundation to Life," and it features the piano, celesta, glockenspiel, mark tree, suspended cymbal, tubular bells, and typewriter! Then I added some children's ambience just for fun and not for the final master track just for y'all. Thank you for listening and commenting.

    You are pretty correct, my friend. The celesta simply adds an innocence mixed softly with the piano a2 and when the light glockenspiel comes in, it simply is there to add some high eq and light color, and the percussion is very light.

    I see it gives the touch.
    This afternoon I will be able to listen to a louder, appropriate volume to catch all the details.
    Also enjoyed your other works on SoundCloud.

    Thank you, my friend, I appreciate that. Do you think it needs anything concerning orchestration?

    Well Rod, the commercial went by so fast I hardly know what to say. But then I listened to your setting of Blake's Garden Of Love. Whoa. You have something there, my friend. This time I am speechless for another reason, for I am awestruck. Very, very beautiful. And haunting. Leave it to Blake to inspire the best in us. He just has a way of doing that.

    Hi Rod,

    This little commercial music has everything a commercial should have: simplicity, directness, supporting the images of a school garden - playing children... and catchy . Good recording btw.

    Very nice,
    Max
