Tune of the Day: Monkeys Spinning Monkeys

arranged for three flutes and piano

Today we propose an arrangement for three flutes and piano of “Monkeys Spinning Monkeys”, one of the most famous compositions by Kevin MacLeod. Written in 2014, it is a piece that has no ending and could, at least in theory, go on forever; the original score suggests, quite humorously, to “stop at some point”. You may have heard this catchy tune in one of many online videos, as it has been extremely popular on YouTube. MacLeod provides his music royalty-free, making it possible for anybody to use it under the sole condition that appropriate credit is given.

“Monkeys Spinning Monkeys” by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0. Our arrangement changes the instrumentation from two flutes and pizzicato strings to three flutes and piano. A few notes have been adapted in the third flute part, but the piece is otherwise identical to the original.

Thanks to Sophie for suggesting this piece!
