As the music box mysteriously opens, the dancer spins round. The darkened toy room comes alive. Just for a little while. The older dolls and teddies, stately and formal. The new upstarts and electronic curios. And the noisy jack-in-the-boxes and fellow mischief-makers. Then a warning. A creak, a shaft of light. A twirling ballerina, an empty room.

Nice. An Orchestrated Music Box come alive. Percussion sounds realistic for a music box dancing. Could be made Tim Burton like.

OH, there I go trying to change everything

Wonderful set up (in the description) and the music itself is just perfect - the minimal beginning (so intimate) leading into a more orchestral piece (grand!) and then adding some modern beats to it (brilliant!). Love the way your mind works. smiley

Fantastic. A sad yet beautiful melody, then the anger and crazyness of jack-in-the-box, then the box closes again... I love this

A very lovely piece Iqbal which could have been more developed IMHO smiley But you know me... The blend of classical and electronic sounds makes me think of some Craig Amstrong's pieces.

Lovely piece of music, Iqbal. smiley ~ Cindy

I really nice masterpiece of music. I really like the composition. The melody line is unique and ear wormy. A really nice arrangement of the orchestra. I think you got some new sounds in your toolbox. Really nice music.

Thanks, @KennethLavrsen! I'm glad you liked the piece. I hope you had a nice holiday? Was the weather kind?

A few new sounds, for sure - i meant to tell you, I finally got Zebralette to work! You know I was having problems with it? Finally cracked it.

@thsantac - my friend, I tried to do another verse, maybe a variant tune, but you know me, after two minutes worth I can struggle with the same piece.

@carlajpatterson - thanks, Carla! I was purposely wanting to not do another orchestral piece, so I introduced the more electronic components into the second half. Never let it be said that I only do classical pieces smiley

@RubyDubidoux, @cinderelle - thanks, Elaine, Cindy! So glad you liked. I've always been fascinated by music boxes. Something so sad about them, I always think.

i hear the depth Sam mentioned. the juxtaposition of the delicate dancer against the change in rhythm and mood in the second half is nothing less than amazing. i sat here with my mouth and ears open to try and take it all in at one pass - and failed. sweet creation, Brother!

Your comments about this piece really sets the whole thing up nicely.
I love that almost staccato turning the crank intro/outro such a captivating quirky melody too
The orchestration builds slowly and dramatically which grabs you by the lapels and doesn't let go 'til the very last mischievous note.
An excellent choice of sounds compliment a very fine composition that is well played, recorded and mixed.
