On Top Of a Cloud Announces Placement with AudioSparx
By: On Top Of a Cloud
AudioSparx, an industry-leading music library...that brings together a world of music...from thousands of independent music artists, producers, bands and publishers in a hot online marketplace, designated Leland Thomas Faegre a Permanent Featured Artist in December, 2016.
On Top Of a Cloud Composer and Founder, Leland Thomas Faegre was delighted with the placement by AudioSparx:
"Although this composition was another of those that wrote itself, "Serengeti Serenade" was composed early in 2002 on a recently purchased Triton LE and remained without an instrumental chorus until late in 2004 when I began in earnest to arrange and produce what became quite a departure from my typical compositional style."
"The introduction to "Serengeti Serenade" features the Kudu [Antelope] horn often described as having French horn characteristics. The Kudu or Antelope horn is also heard at the conclusion and serves as a hook of the production; African flute, Kalimba and sundry, indigenous percussion in addition to African choral samples build ever so gradually during the bridge or 'middle eight.'"
Faegre added, "On the Korg Triton LE, there is a patch described as 'Song of Africa' that served as the inspiration for this work and for me, it is not unusual for pre-set patches to be quite enough to evoke a creative response. Close your eyes and enjoy the Serengeti."
"It is wonderful to have AudioSparx working for the placement of music from our portfolio" said Leland Faegre, Founder and President of On Top Of a Cloud, LLC who, along with his daughter, Deirdre Leah Faegre, contributes to the company's catalog of music production."
Taxi, an independent artist and repertoire (A&R) firm that acts as a casting agent to the labels and Hollywood studios, describes "Serengeti Serenade":
"You did a really good job of creating an impression of the Serengeti...your work is quite unique…I am always impressed with your talent and ability to generate interesting and authentic sounds and unusual and engaging arrangements...Very good production and musicianship...the ethnic component leaves a predominant impression...You very well may be a "musical maverick" from my interpretation of your biography. I appreciate how the piece feels bright and uplifting - particularly when the Ethnic sounding, choir-like voices enter...You're impressively all over the map as a composer."
"Serengeti Serenade" is available from iTunes, Amazon and many other fine stores:
