I couldn’t resist the temptation to sample my Coyote caller! Had to capture the howl of their “Haunting Serenade.” Thanks for watching and commenting! Bob

I like the music, and the way you mixed the coyote sounds with it, but have reservations about the title. The coyote’s cry itself can easily be considered a serenade (a gentle love song performed outside someone’s window at night), and it’s definitely haunting, but I don’t think the music itself fits the title. The music has a lot of drive (except at the very beginning and at the end), which, to me, goes against the idea of the haunting serenade this listener expected from reading the title. The title also didn’t contribute to my understanding of the music — I think it actually hindered it. The music is a very good match for the video scenes of the animal running and hunting, and also perfectly captures the precarious nature of its life. From the music, I’m hearing excitement, danger, and some sadness. The title refers only to the coyote’s cry, while the song communicates so much more. So I see the title as limiting, where it could (and should, I contend) guide the listener into a wider interpretation.

very, very nice. very interesting. love the piano arpeggios.

Thank you for posting. I kinda dissagree with andybur. I say kinda because I am personally haunted by the cries of animals. I think wild and domesticated livestock get the raw end of the deal. Many times, They are treated as if they have no rights at all. Although the cries from the coyotes may not be screams of pain, the noises remind of how heartless some people can be towards animals. I know the polpulation of many animals, such as coyotes can get out of hand, but I think that is pretty much because of humans desprupting the food chains. Anyway, got off the music onto political stuff–great job–you made me think.

I don’t know why I just got to this. I really like the music. Really nice piano. You fit in the coyote calls nicely. They do have a huanting effect to them, but other then the beginning and ending piano, the music is a little to upbeat for the title. You did a great job putting together the music and video.

    Hey Jim, thanks for the words of encouragement! I wanted to keep the energy high in the soundtrack because most of the time the dogs are running. I was trying to to convey that excitement or chaos in the music. Maybe a little over done? I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment! Bob

Cool pup! The music is pretty cool. Has a new age/electronica vibe. Not sure what you are going for with this but it’s watchable. I like the different elements in the track. Lots of energy. I think the gun shot signified an animal being shot? if so maybe a pic of a dead Coyote would drive that home. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Danny for your kind words. I was afraid if I went too far with the hunting scenario (showing a dead dog) this would turn into a political (animals rights) debate. Since I was just wanting feedback on the music, I kept it low key. Thanks for the listen and your comments. Bob

Nice flow! Its almost like the coyote is singing this one……

    Thank you for saying that! That was exactly the effect I was going for. I spent a lot of time on timing the barks and howls to match the video and the song. Thanks for listening! Bob

Nice job Bob,

Pretty amazing, I’ve got a pack across the field and in the quarry that howls like you’ve never heard
