The 4/4, C# Major theme I came up with when imagining the display of the title taking place in the imaginary film. I forget how it was written when I actually did write in a screenplay, but it had something to do with colorful artwork of a childish variety, like the stuff you would see in a Nickelodeon cartoon. I have some ideas now that I came up with a title, but I will spare you long details. The theme of the film itself was conceived as beginning in B Major with an augmented fifth switching between 5/4, 7/4, and 6/4, and this piece contains the 7/4 section, in proper B Major, just to provide contrast to the original melody. The title is another reference to Charles Camille Saint-Saens and his 1886 chamber music work of hilarious genius, "Le Carnaval des Animaux." The title refers to how, when we are little children, we all treat recess as our jungle, our battleground, our gym, what have you... little animals blowing off steam without a thought. Then our battles become emotional, our exercises in trying to maintain social stability, our animal playground the cafeteria. There is a reason Mouravieff refers to emotion as "the animal life of the feelings..." at least before we start thinking past our own nose. The cafeteria is no less frivolous a place of recess for most teenagers, but we certainly think it is at the time.
