Topic: Flea Circus (GPO celesta)

    Flea Circus (GPO celesta)

    Flea Circus, 1:30, 2.8Mb

    Title................Flea Circus
    Genre..............instrumental solo celesta
    Composer.........Darwin Kopp
    Comp date.......August 2007
    Comp time.......a couple days
    Samples..........GPO celesta
    Monitors..........Sennheiser HD 580

    Just a short demo of the GPO celesta for anyone interested. This was originally written as a beginner's piano piece for my goddaughter, but I think it works nicely as a celesta solo. It begins with a tiny fanfare and ends with all the fleas taking their bows.

    Feedback is not requested; however, any questions will be answered.

    This is a very clever work, both in composition and execution. Your goddaughter is a very lucky girl . Thanks for sharing it with the forum.

    - ! - And now for something completely different! Oh man, Darwin, I love this!

    In "Limelight," Charlie Chaplin performs a vaudville act featuring an (invisible) trained flea circus. This would be the perfect sound track for his act.

    I love being surprised - and this post certainly surprised me. AND I'm so glad to hear someone using the GPO Celesta properly. I remember a post some time back from someone who was confused by the sound of it, since the programming is backwards in an older version of GPO. If you didn't use the pedal, the notes would cut off unnaturally. Here, it's ringing out the way it should.

    Get this one copyrighted quickly. This would be the most perfect Ice Cream Truck music. This would attract children like bees to a flower. Brovo.
