Feel: Calming, uplifting
This is the first slow 8-bit piece I ever tried. There was some skepticism going in, but holy man! This turned out great! You can use it for your game credits, or more chill parts of your game. Maybe at the Healing Shack, or the Abe Vigoda Memorial Pagoda and Koi Pond. The uncompressed download has a bonus percussion track.
Instruments: Piano, percussion
Feel: Calming, relaxed
Gorgeous, rich piano chords run counter to subtle percussions. This piece is a workhouse for video productions. Don't bother with the preview, just download this thing. Because seriously... planning a cat rescue? This will work. Attending someone else's family reunion and trying to convince them you're related? Yes. This will work. Time lapse of a rocket assembly? Obviously. I'm looking at you, ESA!
Feel: Mystical, Calming, Relaxed
While not an epic hour-long relaxation juggernaut, Soaring is an excellent relaxation workhorse with just enough mystical qualities to keep it from being truly peaceful. Imagine a calm monkey hanging out at a remote monastery who, from time to time, will touch a tree - causing the tree to age a decade in a matter of seconds. I mean... still pretty calm, but something isn't right about that.
|Secret of Tiki Island
"Secret of Tiki Island"
Instruments: Bass, Piano, Percussion, Vibes, Guitar, Vocals, Organ
Feel: Eerie, Grooving, Mysterious, Calming
Co-written with Bryan Teoh while he was on vacation (Thanks Bryan!) this is all the mystery and chill groove you need. So come on you cats and swingers, enjoy yourself a Jet Pilot (served in a pineapple of course) and help unravel the Secret of Tiki Island! Can you save yourself and the island from the Volcano!? No. Of course you can't. It is a freaking VOLCANO. If the pyroclastic flows and lahars don't kill you, the carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide probably will. Uncompressed download comes with 10 different stems so you can mix your own!
Instruments: Guitar, Synths, Percussion
Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Calming, Uplifting
Quite a broad piece. Could be used for corporate films of intricate industrial processes, or a flashback scene to the time at the lake a few summers ago. Maybe good background to your cousin's magic show at the last family reunion. Or a film where you do "industrial processes" at the "lake" with your "cousin". It is really quite versatile! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Feel: Somber, Relaxed, Mystical, Calming
It is the future? It certainly sounds like it... What would I use this for? Probably a video game with non-action gameplay. Certainly a montage of some futuristic film... or maybe one of those sandwiched scenes where a person is walking in the rain, but you don't get any of the sounds of the actual rain... just this piece. No dialog, no voiceover, just walking. Do they have a name for those scenes? They must. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Bass Flute, Synths, Percussion
Feel: Somber, Relaxed, Mystical, Calming
Wikipedia describes the Thunderbird as "a supernatural bird of power and strength". It will also ask you to disambiguate it from the automobile made by Ford from 1955 to 2005. I'm sure it was a nice car. I've never owned one. But there were a lot of them! The late 70's Thunderbirds are particularly horrifying... They had those headlight covers that flipped up... because that was a good idea at some point. But this piece! Oh! This piece! Atmosphere like you wouldn't believe! The flute is just so earthy! The organic drones are also beautiful. The whole thing is beautiful. Kind of like you went to an alien day spa in another dimension where days last for years, but you still never get all wrinkly when you're in the bubbly warm waters. mmmm... bubbly warm waters... with the slight possibility of a serial killer.

Instruments: Piano, Flute, Bass, Percussion, Organ, Guitar, Mellotron
Feel: Calming, Grooving, Humorous
Okay, the tuning on the bass is a bit off here and there, but the heart is in the right place.Throw a filter on this and use it an your waiting area jam. Or on-hold music. Or pre-show music for your militia function. I'm sure the calming aspects would be very welcome in all the situations! Oh, you can also use this in your dance routines. Because bossa novas rock! ... or they Bossa... not sure. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Piano, Strings
Feel: Calming, Mystical, Relaxed, Somber
Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Feel: Calming, Relaxed
This was a quick improvisation that turned out pretty listenable! Original title was "Sofa King Beautiful", but I figured "Fresh Air" worked better. Since this is a piece for solo keyboard, I included four alternate keyboards in the uncompressed download. They all have subtly different feels. Electric Piano, Grand Piano, Spinet Piano (out of tune), and a piano where you tap the strings rather than hit it with the hammers. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

This epic 41-minute relaxing juggernaut is a continually changing yet always pleasant piece. How pleasant? Very, very pleasant. You can just put this one on and drift away to the imagined utopian land of your choosing! Suitable for day-spa background music, dental office calming music, very long form landscape or train videos, governmental intake and processing videos. The uncompressed download does not contain separate files, just the one big 650 meg wav file. You can download this in uncompressed format here.
