might not be library but worth a shot.
« on: June 24, 2018, 08:36:00 PM »
When I was a kid I used to tape songs off the TV that I liked, I was also into Computer graphics in the 80's and recorded a lot of the documentaries that were on the BBC and others circa 88-92. some of the animations had some amazing music, some definitely cribbed from library and some were custom.
I recently found an old audio tape with a piece of music on it that I loved, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what documentary I recorded it from. None that seem to be on youtube any way. which is a shame as that would have given me a direction to look in for the name of the track - I have a vague memory that it was from some kind of water simulation, and that william lathams - mutations was featured on the same show.

Anyhow here's the recording - the voice at the end is all that was recorded, if you know the track - library or not - put me out of my misery and let me know!!

I've called it "genki" as I think that is what the lady says..

Sounds a lot like and industrial piece, if you can call it that. I thought it could be from Pizzicato Five, but not sure. Used music identifying app and uploaded to YT to check if the copyright notice might pop up, but struck out on both, Im afraid. For the sake of the argument and in case it helps Genki = 元気 means fine/healthy/vigorous/energetic in English. :)

Thanks  JMTeixeira!

Its an odd piece for sure, the bass has a very <>1990 ravey sine wave sound, the rest reminds me of some of gary changs Under Siege soundtrack (its not - I checked) but similar samples/synths.
I'll deep dive Pizzicato Five and report back, Thanks for trying with YT, good tip! The voice could be saying 'genki colour'.. something maybe. or denki perhaps...

Cool, and glad youve mentioned that the word uttered might be "denki" instead of "genki". In that case, it has several meanings, although the ones more appropriate related to the song might be: romance/biography/life story; it also means: electricity, electric lights, electrical machinery. Hey, if this helps, the better. Hope this track pops up on your side.
