I had desperately wanted to be a cub scout but my Father was adamant that I could not join due to a nasty experience he had during his time in the movement. He told me at the time it was due to the dangers of tent pegs but later in life he told me the truth.

The sound production on this is first rate and the feeling you have created with these boistrous sounds is magical. In light of my latest mix I found the bees very stimulating!

Great stuff!

I love to take a phrase from an idea and run it through Here, the phrase “Creative Commons to the Rescue” came up, although, by coincidentally, the phrase ended up having a double meaning because the RFP for the mixter went up the same day! I was a cub scout, and a never-got-anywhere boy scout, but the citation is less an homage to scouting than a recognition that if I were 12 in 1913 and hiking in a Florida swamp, I’d love to go rescue a lost balloonist!

Thanks for your kind words on this mix. I am “saving” your hornet mix until I can get home to proper headphones to hear it!

Ok so for me, this is the ‘genre’ in which you really explode. I have become aware of your photography of late (random incident) and I know you are thoughtful, careful, but I really love when this completely manic and nutty side of you emerges. It’s silly and brilliant, all at once. And perhaps a little PTSD for the listener afterwards- they have drugs for that though, right????

I remember the first (and nearly only) time I drank too much alcohol. I got progressively more wordy and pseudo-intellectual. If releasing my inhibitions meant becoming even more boring, then I decided to just teetotal :).

I like to mix exuberantly sometimes. Why put 25,000 samples at freesound, other than to use 20,000 or so? It’s fun to have a zany side. Lately, I feel drawn to childrens/novelty/soundscape instrumentals. It’s fun to go down that road, for at least a while. This one does PTSD a bit, but it will be a good youtube setting—though I may have to do the video myself :).

My overall impression of this would have to be the stirred-up memories of school field trips, where I would be captivated by a particular moment in time, yet interrupted/hurried along to keep pace with the group…
Maybe this wasn’t anywhere near your intention, but at least your uploads remain provocative; a Gurdonark track is always worth the time invested.

I loved school field trips. We never did too many, but the idea of them was just grand. This one is a bit too-too, but I wanted to do something that wasn’t 40 bpm and I wanted to have zany fun. So I did.

I reminds me of a hurly burly time at a country fair midway. A summer night, lots of cotton candy, the smell of popcorn and manure….carinval barkers and the tilt-a-whirl all mashing together to make a perfect cacophony.
