An Anthem for 2010

Earlier this week, Vancouver’s 2010 Olympic mascots were revealed. You can see and hear the mascots through this microsite.

Each mascot will say their (his? her?) name aloud when you mouse over the text of their name. When I heard Sumi say his or her name, I heard something of a mid-nineties rave in it. Just a hint, really.

I spent an hour with GarageBand, and produced 67 seconds of pure Olympic magic. To play the song, just click the icon in the box below:

I know it’s really awful, but I had tremendous fun making it. GarageBand rocks out. As it were.
