Hello,I just completed this song about two adventurers, a fox and a bear.  I wouldn't classify the song specifically as a "children's" song, though I want it to appeal to kids.  But it's a (modern)…Continue

The FOX and BEAR - Modern Medieval Story Song

Hello,I just completed this song about two adventurers, a fox and a bear.  I wouldn't classify the song specifically as a "children's" song, though I want it to appeal to kids.  But it's a (modern) medieval fantasy story song.  Comments, critiques and feedback are welcomed, thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWiPacg0PSM- Ronald J.

"So I sometimes have trouble relating a song to a theme as suggested. Neither am I a golfer, so maybe I'm a bit disconnected from this to comment on it accurately.  Sounds like a decent basic theme sort of thing to me. Nothing pops out at…"

Hello,I enjoyed watch Tiger and Charlie Woods this weekend, so I decided to write a song about them.  I tried to build the song to kind of show growth as we learn more about Charlie and how much he resembles his dad in personality and talent.  Feedback is welcomed.  Enjoy!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fESKx0X3Qf4Ronald J.

"As I've said before this isn't really my kind of music but it sounded pretty cheerful, nicely produced and reminiscent of wandering musicians who'd stop off and entertain at town plazas and taverns. (Not that I was around in those…"

"Definitely has that medieval vibe in it. It does sound lively and fun! I guess as a demo the lack of the feeling of space ( no reverb) coupled with the extra tight rhythm would be ok. This is only my opinion, I would probably "humanize"…"

"Thanks Jos and Dane for your comments!  I appreciate the advice and example link.  I've updated the song in the OP.  Basically I added some notes to the chord accompaniment and did some slight additions to the drums.  Thanks…"

Jos Wylin replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion "A Pleasant Ride at the River's Side"
"Hi Ronald Lovely piece, for sure. Unfortunately the chord accompaniment is a bit dull and the harmony is not always adequate. The recording seems pretty much OK and the flutes are brilliant, as well as their interweaving play. Maybe the percussion…"

"If you were interested on a slightly modern take, can I assume you're familiar with the Mediaeval Baebes? Mostly traditional but they blend with more modern styles occasionally. For anyone interested: https://youtu.be/t0v7nv2s3tQ"

"Nice but short piece. I think you hit the intended mood brilliantly. I can see the scene in front of me. It will fit perfectly to the movie scene. Cheers, Kjell"

We need more Help for this Serious Journey

I composed this song for a fantasy story (I haven't written yet).  My thinking is the heroes have just suffered a devastating loss (maybe a major town was destroyed), and they realize they need more help to face the enemy.  So the song is about reflection.  Thoughts and comments are welcomed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIh2TLS9mEUSee More

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
My name is Ronald Fontenot and I am a composer, artist, author and illustrator. I began my music journey by composing children's melodies. This grew to composing children's songs and now I am composing songs intended for video games and animated short films. I have not done anything professional as of yet, but I would like to. I am a recent graduate of Colorado State University with a BFA in electronic art. I enjoy writing my own music to videos I have made for children. My channels on youtube include Kids Vids SCJ, YTKidsVIds and MusicSCJ. SCJ stands for Scott C. Johnson which is my pen name as an author and an artist. You can just call me Ronald though:)
