Highlight reel of original music composition by Mike Hallenbeck for the animated series "Whirl", from the Sparkhouse division of Augsburg Fortress Publishers.
Styles include rock (creative brief: think Springsteen), Looney Tunes-esque orchestral mirroring, old school hip hop, monster movie disaster soundtrack, kung fu R&B, war drums, and vintage soap opera organ. I was also the sound designer on these episodes, and I performed the raccoon voices as well.
I did not, of course, write "Ode To Joy"; but I did play it appropriately ineptly on the song flute and arrange the bombastic orchestral delivery at the end.
