Kids On the Monkey Bars


Uploaded on Aug 23, 2016

I was improvising on a chord progression I was using in another of my pieces, and I came up with this. Truth is, there are a lot of directions you can take with an improvisation such as this.

The left hand has the ostinato F major-G major-A major-G major. The right hand has the kids on the monkey bars singing improvised playground tunes. The kids are bad at singing. They can't sing along with the ostinato. They can't even sing in tune.

...The kids also can't sing for long, and the piece ends as they get off the monkey bars (and, perhaps, move on to another part of the playground).

In Musescore, I hope the "Contemporary" genre means more modern music (i.e. Contemporary Classical Music as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contemporary_classical_music) and not "Adult Contemporary Music" as defined in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adult_contemporary_music...
