March of the Fiddler Crabs

March of the Fiddler CrabsThis is what I did in my free time yesterday. Please listen to it with headphones. If you listen to it with your regular computer speakers, you’ll miss quite a lot of the sounds in it. Anyway, I didn’t have a title for it when I was writing it, but, once the piece was finished, “March of the Fiddler Crabs” seemed to fit nicely. Speaking of nice, I’m usually not a big fan of clarinet (unless it’s in the context of a well-done Rhapsody in Blue), but I’m pleased with how the clarinet in this one sounds. Nice sample, courtesy of the Budapest Philharmonic.

  1. The crabs are marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah… Not having any headphones handy, I had to disobey orders and listened to it headphoneless. And I still like it a lot.

    1. Thanks, but it seriously works better with headphones. Most computer speakers automatically cut out a lot of low-end. I’m guessing you’re probably not hearing the bass part properly. It’s a vital part, kind of like how monkeys are a vital part of any self-respecting zoo.
