This one got turned up to 11. I started producing this as a parody... then I really started liking it, so I guess it is a pastiche now? Oh, man... I wish there was an allowance for pastiche in copyright like there is for parody.
Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Flute
Feel: Driving, Grooving
Before you complain about the bass, that is the entire point of this mix. It is scary-bass... yet somehow subdued. If this bass was a car, it would be a cement mixer... That's a terrible analogy. Forgetting for the moment that a cement mixer isn't a car... I guess they have the ones that are mounted on big trucks - and those trucks share a lot in common with cars, you know steering wheels, engines, tires, and the soon-to-be-anachronistic internal combustion engine. Anyway, if you don't like the bass you can pretty easily EQ it to a reasonable level, or buy the stems and remix it yourownself. Before you complain about the use of the word "yourownself", I wrote it. You understood it. It is a word. There is also some dreamy flute in here.
Instruments: Percussion, Synths
Feel: Driving, Suspenseful
The Year: Future Year. The planet has been ravaged by desertification... that apparently no one saw coming... Not sure how that happened, I mean Jeez! Anyone ever hear of a little disaster called "The Aral Sea"? That seriously screwed up... like... everything. I guess the dam is supposed to help, but I'm seriously not holding my breath. Oh. Industrial-sounding music.
Instruments: Gamelan, Helicon, Percussion
Feel: Mystical, Eerie, Mysterious, Calming, Dark
Vaguely exotic sounding, yet still comfortably tonal, this piece certainly falls between some cracks. Gamelan is listed as an instrument... but that's sort of like listing an orchestra as an instrument... which I sometimes do. The other thing in here is that helicon. Imagine you take a french horn (which is like 5 meters of tubes) and make it even bigger! I guess it is also the name of a mountain in Greece? I did not use the mountain in this piece.

Discomedusae is an obsolesced class of jellyfish. I'm guessing there was some biology schism back in the day and some crazy jellyfish specialist wrote some sort of definitive work on the animals and everyone had to change their classification. The jerk. I mean, it was probably JUST FINE the way it was! But NOOooo! You had to come along and screw up my perfectly good taxonomy key - rendering it USELESS! Hey jellyfish specialist - guess what? No one cares that much anyway! We're all just placating you until you die, and then everyone is going back to using the old keys, which we could at least figure out! This is a disco tune.
