Promises to Keep

It is 2012, and I’m going to start posting more things… like… posting some sheet music when applicable.
The sheet music for this one is particularly bad, as it was not played in with a click track. All of the values are approximate, but you get the notes at least.

Promises to Keep

Got 20 minutes?

Jiraiya the Brave, a 1921 Japanese silent film, was just recently rescored with my music.
I think this is a great example of how to score old silent films to make them not seem like cartoons.

Jiraiya (literally “Young Thunder”), the title character of the Japanese folktale Jiraiya Gōketsu Monogatari (“The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya”), is a ninja who uses shapeshifting magic to morph into a gigantic toad. The heir of a powerful clan in Kyūshū of the same name, Jiraiya fell in love with Tsunade, a beautiful young princess who masters slug magic. His arch-enemy was his one-time follower, Orochimaru, who mastered snake magic.


I’ve got some major new functionality for a few of my pieces of music from my partner SmartSound!
For a limited number of pieces, you can get different mixes in ANY LENGTH you want. Most lengths have different mixes available, too!
The music is available under the same terms as exist here. Creative Commons, or per use licensing.
More and more music will be augmented by SmartSound each month.
Check them out – very cool, and always royalty free.
SmartSound! Seriously cool tech.
