Agent Lady Rose. A theme from a 70s TV series about a beautiful classic female agent saving the world from the bad guys. A TV series that never existed. It is all something I made up. And naturally such a TV series needs theme music. This is my idea of how the music would sound like. Inspiration comes from music by composers like John Barry.

It is a waltz - 6 beats to the bar. It has a rather long chord progression with several modulations between keys signatures on the way. It has been fun to make. Enjoy

Obviously inspired by John Barry, specially by "The Persuaders" theme ("Amicalement Vôtre" in french). Nicely composed and performed Kenneth.

Truly amazing -- great sound, and yes, I can easily imagine this as the theme for a television show as you've described it. 6/4 (or 6/8, however you've notated it) is, of course, slightly unusual for mainstream T.V. openings -- but that's what makes it all the more interesting. After all, one of the most all-time popular TV theme songs is written in 5/8 time (anyone care to guess what it is? There's probably more than one, but the one I'm thinking of is legendarily iconic).

Great work here on composition, and production. ! Bravo!
It has a resemblance to The Persuaders, yes, but so has a few other TV themes I have heard but don't their name. Yeh Berry (RIP) wrote a lot of waltzes. I like those slightly twisted melodies., and the mood it creates.

I would watch the show! I like your opening theme too! It is very mysterious sounding yet contemplative and upbeat. It doesn't seem to want to be taken too seriously either which is hard to achieve in songs. A playfulness and a deepness of subject matter. Very well executed!

Peace,
Tony

Hoss_von_Liederhosen Artist I said, "How can you have a secret agent theme in 3/4-6/8?" But you did! I think what makes it so secret agent-y is the use of a hammered dulcimer and/or harpsichord sound, makes it very Eastern European or Soviet. Lovely music, chord backgrounds, use of nice sounds. The melody didn't always grab me but in a TV theme it's not supposed to, more of a cinematic or ambient style. Niiiice!

Wow, what an amazing piece, Kenneth! This hooked me in right from the outset. I love the setting (at first I fully believed that there had been such a series, and then thought it unusual for you to do a cover, as I know you don't usually do them). I really like the Eastern European sound to this, due largely to the zither-type instrument and the quirky rhythm (a waltz with a bounce). Beautifully constructed and developed all the way through. Now we just need to make the TV series to go with it!

Highly imaginative & creative. Definite John Barry influence / inspiration, but all your own creation. The raven haired beauty Lady Rose you have created is a beauty. I was thinking the same thing as Iqbal, wondering why I didn't remember this series. smiley Excellent work.

Thanks for sharing with us, masterful original composition, performance & production.

There are shades of every theme I remember from that time in this so even though it is new it is somehow forever remembered-if that makes any sense. smiley

Hi, Kenneth. To be briefer: That was really a treat. Wonderfully smooth, deep sounds. 007 ambience with an intriguing, lyrical melody and chord progression powerfully rendered. One humble suggestion: more inflection.The beautifully mysterious melody could flow and ebb for the listener with some build-up in and out and an alternate expressive rendering, maybe with a softer touch. Here, the chords are pounded out evenly, but think of your Rose in a dark alley with a paramour - sort of a subtheme...

And in answer to @padowan_learner's little quiz: Would it by any chance be the theme from "Mission Impossible" that you are thinking of?

Great production and song Kenneth! sorry I just missed the week it was first posted.
I just found out recently that 6/8 (if this is what your song is) is really two sets of 1/8 note triplets back to back. Comes out the same but now I'll only think of it that way. smiley

I am getting behind on my thank you messages. Wow, what a list of people that took the time to give so nice feedback. You make me very proud.

Lars. I think you are right Mission Impossible is for sure in 5/4 or 5/8. That was the one I was thinking about also. I used 6/4 for my Agent Lady Rose as this gave a nice click track for the first track I recorded.

To Proliferousrose: Yes Hedy Lamarr was a really beautiful woman. And when I read about her she turns our to be a mathematician and inventor also. She invented some of the basic frequency hopping techniques that are used today in e.g. wireless networks. What a surprise. I did not know that when I picked a random photo from the net. Perfect character for my Agent. Sad she is dead now. Maybe my wife could play the part ??! smiley
