("Doodlebug" is the common name for the insect Antlion ("Ant Lion") As a child, I remember watching this predator (in the larval stage) build traps in the sand in which it snared ants and then devoured them.)
I first posted it over a year ago. Since then I have revamped and remixed it.
All instruments - GPO sample library.
Software sequencer - Sonar 7.
Sample player - Kontakt 3.
In fact, there's no way I could enjoy encountering one of these the way I always enjoy your music... including this piece! I particularly liked the way the pizz strings kind of danced all the way through this; I could picture a busy insect (devouring ants??) accompanied by those playful strings.
I missed this one before, so I'm certainly glad I caught it this time. As somewhat of a coincidence, I'm off to do yardwork for the day... I just hope I don't run across any crawling doodlebugs. YOUR Doodlebug was a great way to start the day, though! Thanks for posting this little delight, Larry!
You've hurt my pride. I can't think of a better name for this. Delightful.
I do so appreciate the little key shift toward the end, so you see it doesn't take much to make me happy. Maybe not Mozart, but shades of LeRoy Anderson.
