Red Rider themes

December 1, 2016 7:59 PM

For a storytelling project, I made six variations of a three note motif, to represent the personalities of six different characters. Each little theme is less than ten seconds long, so even when I put all six of them together it adds up to less than 60 seconds. I hope to post the whole project someday, but at least this version counts for the November Music Challenge!

This is hilarious. I really want to know about these characters. The panpipe one is ADORABLE.

Here are my impressions:
#1: and now for poetry corner
#2: fuck yeah i'm indie
#3: i design video games
#4: i am not only the equipment manager for the football team but also the drum major for the marching band.
#5: we didn't take marching band but had to fulfill music credit somehow, so we get high under the bleachers before this class.
#6: I took my music credits very seriously and am scoring my friend's short film for local cable.

Also make me think you could do the same kinda thing with the Residents' "Red Rider", which in itself is a minute-long song.

Excellent impressions, not_on_display!

I used to listen to the Residents' Commercial Album all the time, but I never paid attention to the song names. Red Rider!!
