Pukka-Dory Flutter – Playfio Music Productions

Playfio Music Productions
The latest music creation from Playfio is entitled ‘Pukka-Dory Flutter’ make what you will of the name, it doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but then this one’s more about the music. My thinking was that more people might listen to this if I use a potentially memorable name! Probably won’t work but nothing ventured and all that.

This track came about through another compilation with Angela Sharman. She first wrote the original song for a scene in a short film. You can listen to the original here. I have used a number of samples from Angela’s composition, I have veered away into quite a different sound and genre of music but I’m still learning and keen to try new styles of music.

For ‘Pukka-Dory Flutter’the mastering side of things has become more of a factor. A recent addition to the music toolbox was a set of studio monitors. The difference in sound compared to the old pc speakers is vast, and now the ability to hear and fine tune all frequencies, clear out white noise, crackles, hiss etc. is awesome!

So here she is, enjoy listening:
