"Hi Damon,
Very cute!  Pretty.
Maybe it could be made shorter...  The percussion becomes tiring sometimes...
New material keeps it up anyway.
Thanks for sharing.  Something fun to listen to.
I like toys still at 6.

"Thank you, Ingo for listening and the kind words.
I was prevented from going to music school after high school but felt my whole life that I had a lot of personality to give to music. So at age 59, after getting to retire early, I bought DAW…"

"This is likeable and appealing music Damon, it has elements of pop music but is more sophisticated than what I hear from the media outlets these days.  Very creative and you have your own sound which is important IMHO.  I'm not sure this works for…"

"Hi Damon,

"Thank you, H.S. Teoh!
But you surprise me with liking the sound FX part. I was all set to defend that part as just things I thought would make a little kid laugh. Also, I wanted to include the sound of a bike ride and realized that bikes don't have…"

"Weighing in as the least educated forum member, once again.
I don't know the mechanics of writing a Fugue (hope to still get to go to music school at age 64) but whatever you tried pushed some of the chords outside of what I would expect from Bach -…"

"Good advice. And timely. I have realized lately that I don't have a conscious understanding of development as a piece goes along.
In fact "banana" was an attempt to create an arc to one of my pieces.

"Hi Damon,
First of all, anyone who is a composer is welcome on this site, it is literally the only requirement to be a member. Your compositional style (classical, jazz, pop, lo-fi, something else) and formal education/lack thereof don't matter.
