Happy Alec is just a just a fun instrumental that I hope will put a little bounce and groove in your day. It’s meant to express the simple carefree joy of childhood. I think the picture fits the song like a glove. The chasing of evanescent winged creatures almost, but never quite, within reach.

Happy Alec is a derivation of another song, Butterflies and Dragons, and was written as a submission to the following advert...

INSTRUMENTAL CUES for TV COMMERCIALS are needed by a High-End Music Library. They’re looking for Positive, Inspiring, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references: Ref 1, Ref 2.

The bar is going to be high for this request as this Music Library will be distributed through a MAJOR Publisher and will be looking for excellent composers for this catalog! Having an “advertising-friendly” sound and vibe that could work well as background music in a variety of media could make this company happy.

Thanks for checking it out. Your comments have been very helpful over the years.
