Nice basssound, start sounds like from a James Bond movie, then melody sets in and it's turning into a groovy and cool synthtune with a lovely melody. Also good play with effects and loudness, Mr.Buzzer. :) tv-factor: good

Suffers a lot from too schalger-like B part but fits in the compo very well and production is OK. En ole täysin varma toimenpiteen järkevyydestä, mutta jaetaan nyt sen verran armonpullaa, että neljä tähteä.
4
by AMcBain
Oooh. Mystery, spy, etc. I'm getting Bond vibes and so on. It's a bit long for an intro though, imo, but I will grant that some [crime] shows mix in things related to the current show in to the intro.

by Kanonmat
I really like the intro, got pink panther feeling there but when the main theme started i felt kinda lost, couldn't relate that as much to TV theme :P

Like almost every song on this compo, would have needed a punchy ending. Production is OK and fits so nicely to the compo's theme that I decided to give an extra star though I'm not sure if it's deserved.
4
by AMcBain
serpent? Who'd have guessed. :P Or else it's some elaborate prank, because I don't recall a serpent song with guitars like that before ... Could fit some sort of animated TV show that everyone doesn't realize is really that weird until they grow up and look back on it, but it gains a cult following anyway.

I must say i like this, it has a cool feel. I think it'd be a lot better though if you filtered the noise sounds a bit, they kinda eat up the tune though doing that risks altering the feel the tune gives. But i think it'd be for the better.

A really great ambient-track, reminds me of Planet Boelex. I would give it 4-5 stars but I don't get the tv-theme-vibe.

Apart from the very beginning (before percussions) i didn't get much movie/tv-serie vibes. Maybe drums had something to do with that, other sounds seemed suitable for compo. Otherwise bit messy but not a bad tune!

Great tune! It doesn't seem to me to fit any of the three genres, but I'm looking forward to hearing it many times in the future.
3
by yzi
- Good feeling. There's even a decent melody, but it's buried in the middle, under lots of stuff in the same place in the stereo field, same frequencies, almost the same volume. Why? Was the composer ashamed of the melody so he/she didn't want anyone to really hear it? - After about 3 minutes, there seems to be ANOTHER song? Is this supposed to contain enough material for an entire TV series, or just the opening tune?

Doesn't drag on, but at the same time I don't quite think a TV show would use a chip tune for intro ... though they did make things like a Mario, Megaman, etc. TV shows so perhaps it might be at least considered. Not too bad otherwise. Maybe some sort of synthified or whatever is done for cartoon intros could be done with the happy upbeat melody ... anyway.

Maybe not what was intended, but I could see this as the intro to some sort of series about historical events (animated or not) involving battles, shots of pyramids and hard working Egyptians (perhaps their slaves). It's also relatively short, which for a TV series intro is good. I love it!

Surprising classical sound, but well done. Nice balance of instruments. Sounds like being from a Sissy-movie or so, the drums sound almost too much, a little like Schwarzwaldklinik aswell. tv-factor: well

Some kind of romantic 17th C lovestory theme? My soul kinda dies a bit listening to this, its extreme in what it is, i dislike it alot for some reason but it still "feels good as a TV theme" and its also well executed so i still give it a 3

Unfortunately it seems this would be better suited as a *closing* song to a show, and it's quite a bit long. I thought it could perhaps stop about 1:50 when it does the note drop and start the actual show. The song itself isn't too bad.

Reminds me of a 80-90s cartoon show, which made me happy :) The transitions are great and adds variety in mood which would fit perfectly for a tv-theme.

Wonder if that piano in the beginning is inspired by the Peanuts theme that I posted to the compo thread... 0:57 part reminds me of "More" (Mondo Cane theme), check out the excellent version by Booker T. & the MG's. Entertaining enough to top the compo.

- Happy happy joy joy. Cheesy piano intro. VERY low bass sound! Good things going in the melody and harmonies, but the bass-heavy mix makes it a bit unclear. I would have placed a bit more emphasis in the bass sound to frequencies an octave higher, and less to the ultra-low. - I don't know how this would fit a TV series.
