At least I’m not going to hell alone.

Can you help me out?
I just finished the first round of composition on a piece.
Here it (was). (7 minutes plus)
Do you have any thoughts on how to make it better?
Do you have an idea for a title?

Normally, I don’t talk about other people’s creative here – but if you want to be on the cutting edge of entertainment, you need to know about this.
I don’t have a TV, and I don’t own a radio. Entertainment is transcending those media if you know where to look.
Imagine C-SPAN meets Seinfeld meets The Truman Show. A kind of thing you can listen to very casually. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, always real.
There are some people who produce media where you get to know them very well. No punches pulled. You get all of their thoughts… including their self-doubt, their problems, their triumphs, their conspiracy theories. Everything that goes on – in detail – unedited.
There is one monologist that I really enjoy – and I think he does ‘real’ better than anyone; Frank Nora.
Right now – Frank is dealing with marketing issues, lunch problems in Midtown Manhattan, the commute (including the infamous “corridor of losers”), persistent con-trails, the problems with sirens, new game inventions… literally hundreds of things.
You don’t need to engage in everything – or anything. It is the sort of thing that you put on and listen to… usually an hour a day or more. How many times can you listen to the same pop music? Why not reconnect with humanity while you live your life?

Out of all the things I’ve done in my life, I think the thing most likely to send me to hell is the composition of “Motivator“.
I think somewhere back in 1992, a CD was produced that changed the world of corporate presentations. It wasn’t great music, or even any good – but it was very popular; and thus was born the “corporate presentation sound”.
I have gotten a lot of requests for this sort of music, and I’ve always said “no”… until now.
“Motivator” has a lot of problems… I’ll leave it as an exercise to the listener to find them all – but one thing it does have, is that early 90′s corporate sound.
I can almost hear the voiceover script for this… “Our 2012 line of fans and blowers is unmatched in the Upper Midwest, and you can see the difference they’ll make in your commercial buildings today!”
what have i done… i am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.
Oh, there’s more. Yes, there’s the other corporate musical plague… the corporate light jazz. You guessed it. I recorded that, too. “Airport Lounge“.
This is also suitable for more chill lifestyle-oriented corporate presentations.
Hear that smooth modulation in the middle of the piece? Yup… smoooth…
I didn’t stop. What if you have a lighter fell-good presentation for… chainsaws or something else fun.
“Hackbeat“. Enjoy. Or… try to enjoy.
