I needed some inspiration last summer for one of the cultural/percussion pieces I wanted to create, and the kids wanted to go out and run in the sprinklers, so I decided to build the piece around their adventure in the sprinklers. So I took my recording stuff outside and recorded the drums while they ran through the sprinklers. I even kept their playful squeals in and used them as percussion.
It’s not as jolly sounding as you would expect from a tune themed around kids playing happily in the yard, but it was a fun piece to make. What do you think?

I’d like to put another instrument or two in this piece, but I haven’t decided what yet. It’s not named yet, and I’ve got some ideas – but I’d be glad to hear your suggestions!
What does it need? What do you like/dislike about it? Tell me what you think!
