Of course I had an evil goat in mind! An extremely evil goat named \'Zippy\'.
I\'m all right. How are things with you?
You are too kind. The rhythm is extremely stiff and stilted. This is partly from laziness and partly for the purpose of contrasting the rigid rhythm section to the the loose and playful violin. The solo contrabass starts with a sawing motion and a section of contrabasses follow. It is rigid indeed.
How about this: The goat\'s initial dance is stiff and unexpressive until the magic elixir that he imbibed has its dramatic effect and sends him into an ecstatic dance. Then, the elixir wears off and the stiffness returns.
Damn that goat. It got into my stash of B.C. gold again!
I liked it. Needs no apologetics. If the rhythm is stiff, what was the goat? Humorous, whimsical and delightful - all signs of intelligence and talent. Personally I would like a slightly elongated half tone , very slow tremolo (vibrato?) of the final vocal sound fading off. That old goat\'s gotta crash sometime.
Thanks for listening and thanks for your comments. I wish I had some more flexible choir samples so I could follow your suggestions.
The strings are an amalgam of Garritan Orchestral Strings and Kirk Hunter solo strings. I used the cellos, violas, and contrabass sections from the GOS library and the solo violin and solo contrabass from the KH library.
