These ditties are also available for commercial license at reasonable fees given Chuck owns all rights (e.g., composition, sound recording).
Commercially these ditties are ideal for background segments in business videos, presentations, film and TV – additionally, said ditties are great for physical therapy.*
Individually, these ditties are moody and provide the listener with a sense of musical journey, almost like a meditation, in that they venture through a changing landscape and often finish with a twist.
I should also mention that my ditties are hard to classify and am open to suggestions but for now I kind of say they are “Ambient Keyboard Electronica Infused with Romantic Piano and a Yippee to the Universe for Sharing Vibe.”
*Suited for Physical Therapy
The reason I suggest that my ditties are suited for physical therapy is based on firsthand experience.
Radio or song centric music played during physical therapy for three months in nursing home recovery was complicated … No music was worse but most of it was flat and irksome … Favorite CDs played by insistence of the most senior therapist were not ideal and dated … Nor weekend therapists CD selections also did not work … In that all cases, therapist bringing in their CDs and/or turning to favorite radio for music was not conducive or optimal recovery by patient(s) …
Thus on the other hand … What would have been appreciated is something more musically objective, with neutral voice, variant but beat building, cascading synths and rhythms with natural ebb and flow with kind peaks and valleys to make said physical therapy more tolerable but I digress.
