THRE3 Eyed Rainbow

By miraclemiles on March 4, 2018 10:27 pm

A long time ago, there was an ape who was fascinated by the Southern Lights. He thought, "I want those." One day he jumped into the sky and grabbed onto the lights. As the lights enveloped him he transformed. He grew a third eye. He turned many different colors. His teeth turned purple and sparkly. He acquired a new power: a spectacular spectrum of colors fly out of him when he jumps. He could jump really really far. One day he jumped from one end of the jungle to the other, leaving a colorful trail behind him as he went. That's how rainbows were created. He listens to this song as he jumps across the sky.

Next time you see a rainbow, look real close. Sometimes you can see his three eyes and sparkly grin peering down at you.

A happy song this week. The song was created on a happy Tuesday evening. Most of what's here was tapped out first take jamming around on the Push. I wasn't sure where these ideas came from, or what to call this song, so my 9 year old son came up with this origin story and title. Now we know! As I was showing him how to step sequence a beat on the Push he also sequenced the main beat heard in the "chorus" part of this. Getting him started early!

Your son came up with a very intriguing and creative back story.  I can totally picture the rainbow ape jamming this song as he leaps through the air.  Definitely dig the happy vibe to this.

Thanks for listening and comment - glad you dig the happy vibe - yeah that back story is a winner - it was inspired by the sculpture he painted, which sits on my desk - fixed the picture above.

Thanks a lot - Nice to get the kiddos involved and get the creativity flowing, the young mind is a wonder! Melodies are tough but something I work on, glad these came out OK, I find I do best when I just tap something out and not try to think about them much. The juicy drum part is more my wheelhouse wink.

Um, best back story ever!! Your son is lucky he gets to be encouraged to create. Loving this happy tropical tune.

Great story, great music. Need a better brand of toothpaste.

Yess, corrupt them when they're young.

Well done the two of you.

The tuning on some of the instruments is just off enough to give this a really fun sound. I'm into all the acoustic sounds!

smile - Thanks mucho! glad you liked backstory and the happy tune! Appreciate that comment about how my son is lucky, I forget not all kids have the access or options, or they are just plain discouraged from arts which is so sad because It's a great time for creativity, so many options and access at our fingertips.

Thanks! I'm in the habit of piling lots of drum and perc together, nice when it works out and glad you thought it did.

Awesome, thanks, Cool observation. I'd like to say that off tuning was on purpose, but for most part was happy accidents, I think I noticed a couple spots with that, and kept them in. Thanks for listening!
