I train & show dogs with routines to music and I'm looking for 3 short, new pieces (between 1 min 30 seconds (preferable) to 2 minutes. Credit is given to the composer in the dog show catalogue & event video tapes made during shows. My 3 toy dogs move quickly (measured 24 on the metronome for 2 dogs and 20 for the other dog) and music must conform to them, not the person.
I'd like something with a relatively steady beat during most, but with sections that can show off short, cute tricks (spins, jumps,etc) during the piece, especially the beginning & end.An occasional rest is great too. The music can suggest a theme (Oriental, circus, Spanish), or not.
I'd sure appreciate it if a composer could create something interesting for me & the audience!
Diane

I met Diane at my high school reunion last week. I assure you she is very serious. I thought it would be a good idea for her to post here, there being so many versatile musicians. This is an opportunity to write some music to fill a true need. This might be a good application for some beat orientied music, even IDM. I really hope someone can come through for her. If so, we'd certainly post the videos here on this site.

Thanks, Diane, for posting this, and welcome to electro-music.com. welcome

Just wondering if anyone is on top of this yet, and what the timeline is for the projects.

I don't know if anyone has contacted Diane via PM or email.

Diane, you say the metronome is set at 24 and 20. That usually means there are 24 quater notes pre measure. This is VERY slow. Could it be that the metronome is clicking with each measure of four beats. (I assume you're dogs are dancing to 4:4 time.) If I'm right, then your true (or at least conventional) metronome setting would be 96 and 80 respectively. Still not real fast.

To make sure, I've recorded a simple mp3 file of a beat in 4:4 time at 96 beats per minute. Is this beat what you want for the faster tempo?

The beat given is too slow, but 4 "pawsteps" would likely take place for each beat. For instance, "Supercalifragilisticexpealidotious" (sp???) is too fast, as is the Flight of the Bumblebee. But the last piece I used was an allegro concerto byVivaldi.
The metronome beat was calculated by a teacher and it may be my dog's paws went down 4 times for every beat.
I have another small dog & am looking at an "Accoustical Guitar" CDas it has unusual sounds/some percussion only sections, but it's a bit too slow.

Diane, were you able to play the 96 BPM file above? Are you saying that it is too slow?
