"Return of the Mummy"

Instruments: Tar, Qanun, Choir, Percussion, Strings

Feel: Dark, Grooving, Mystical

Did you know that people in the 1800s used to make tea out of mummies they dug up in Egypt? Tea. Like the kind you drink. That is because people in the 1800s were dumb. They were so stupid, they thought seaweed was really quite interesting. Today, you would have to be a marine botanist to think seaweed is that exciting. I don't need to mention how "exciting" marine botanists are... Carl! Finding some Caulerpa 20 kilometers outside its published range is no reason to write a paper! And it is certainly no reason to be LATE for your OWN PARTY, CARL!!!

This is about as exciting/happy as simple 8-bit exciting/happy music gets. It's Swingin'! It's Singin'! It's using a whole lotta apostrophes! Sometime's incorrectly! Anyhoo, take a listen to this one. Ye shan't be dis'appointed! Bleep, bloop... bloop, bleep.

Instruments: Chimes, Sleigh Bells, Drums, Synths

Feel: Bright, Uplifting

I was commissioned to do some music for the play "Twas The Night Before Christmas" by Ken Ludwig. The mp3 download here is the main holiday-themed rap from near the end of the play. The uncompressed download comes with that as well as the Girl/Mouse rap from earlier in the play - which you can hear on Soundcloud as "La Souris". The full download also has the exciting fanfare intros to the holiday rap. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Feel: Mysterious, Mystical

Sort of exciting and sort of spooky in that fairy tale sort of way. This is one of my favorite pieces of late. Good interplay of instruments. You can listen to this one over and over. Handy, because it does loop back to the beginning. Major build starting at 1:50 or so.

"There It Is"

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving

Very quick and jovial, this brass heavy piece has a guitar riff that sticks in the brain, but ends suddenly. Useful for a quick theme introduction, transition, or for a fast and exciting commercial.

"Exciting Trailer"

Instruments: Orchestral

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Dark, Driving, Epic, Intense

A militaristic snare drum march begins this piece, reminiscent of Eastern Europe during World War II. The orchestral sounds blend with the sharpness of the brass throughout, but especially after 0:36, when the music is lyrical and melodic, though intensely emotional and suspenseful. At 0:52, the rhythmic march begins again, with the strings playing the melody and the brass reaching discordant, swelling heights until the final crescendo at 1:10.
This piece of music is available in an uncompressed format here.
