ill find it for you.. or happy to purchase it if there is a good place to get it.
It's "The Odd Couple" by Neal Hefti.

And remember I only need (can only use) about 22 seconds worth.

I found what I needed, thanks. Might have time to think about this on Tuesday. Is 22s the ideal time? or is shorter better?

22s is the ideal time from my perspective, since that's how long the video of the intro lasts and i don't think i want to go any longer in the future.
I can imagine in the future trying to aim for a shorter intro video like 15 seconds.  And I can tweak video length down a bit.  But for now 22 seconds.

Has anyone bought that sheet music? I might try at it.

Mouser, I sent you a message with a demo.

ayryq has made something amazing!

Here's two versions, which are similar but different, and both of which I love:



Which one is your favorite?

There's some weird phasing things happening in the first one, maybe from when you sped it up? I can probably produce a cleaner version of that.

That is great ayryq! I like the second one better. Not sure I can put why into words, but I just like it!

I for one would like to know what went into the making of this version, ayryq :)

It was a little iterative. I composed something, sent a midi over to Mouser, got feedback, went back and forth a bit. I started with the form of the music he used in the original post, just rewriting the melody. The chords and most of the melody fragments are borrowed and adapted from the TV theme. Actually it was adapted a bit more, but we wound up with something that came back closer to the original :) Once he was liking it, I started doing recordings. I personally play trumpet, bass guitar, and drums, so those are the instruments I used. Recordings were done using a Zoom H1 into Audacity, in my house when the dog was asleep. There's some recordings I have when the dog wasn't quite as asleep as I thought.

It was really fun to be involved in the feedback loop but my feedback to ayryq must have been very frustrating for him as my comments were like "make it sadder and also happier" or "Can you make the drums sound more like shh shshshts sksksksk".. :)
But somehow it kept getting better.
The only difficult thing for me was each new version had something new i liked and something from the previous one that i missed losing.. Too bad it wasn't a 10 minute song..

Ayryq might agree that the hardest part was getting it all to fit in EXACTLY 22 seconds with a suitably paced start and end...

I've been using version 8 in the intros of our recent videos.  People seem to like it a lot! I love it.
