It hurts my brain to switch from english words to symbols. Try to read these words and symbols out loud quickly: hyphen-slash-backslash/dash/-\hyphen//hashtag_octothorpe#- Crazy, right? That had nothing to do with this piece of music. I'm just sharing.

How can you tell if a piece of music is intended to be comedic? Pizzicato strings and a bass clarinet! This piece has it all! Pizzicato strings? Check! Bass clarinet? You bet! Throw in some staccato high winds and you got yourself a great comedic piece! Going out on a date and want to appear more entertaining? Bring a bass clarinet! Bass clarinet players I think also get discounts at T.G.I.Fridays; Double bonus!

Feel: Eerie, Unnerving, Dark

Oh! The horror! This is NOT a fun piece. It WILL make you feel like there is something seriously wrong. Did those veins on my forearm always look like that? I mean, they're doing a weird criss-cross pattern... and they look REALLY blue. I would have noticed that before, surely! I wonder if this has anything to do with the meteor that came down in Mr. Wilson's pond last night? Uncompressed download comes with 4 stem files in case you don't need all the creepy, all the time.

Feel: Dark, Epic, Action, Driving

Five! Five full minutes of battle fighting action bits with a bit of an Egyptian flair! For some reason I associate English horn with desert nomads. There must have been some cultural reference in my youth to that effect. Super crazy awesome brass is super crazy awesome... wait for it... you'll be glad you did!

Feel: Aggressive, Driving, Dark

Formerly titled "Tyranid Battle Loop", this piece was written for down and dirty... and very very long battle scenes for space bug critters. But you can use it for anything you like! Got a video where you stuck a cucumber on a drone to terrorize your cat? Boom! Corruption. Or those really gross films of people removing cysts? ug. don't use this for that. Actually, why are you posting that? Don't do it. Just... ug. can't unsee... You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

You want battle music? You can't HANDLE the battle music! Meh. You probably can. As battle music goes, this is pretty tame - no blaring trumpets or hyperactive xylophones... Why? Dialog! You can actually talk over this battle music! Feel free to punctuate with your own stabs after you cut around your dialog. Or don't. You can use this as a loop on your Twitch stream for anything... battle-y. That rough spiccato bass line is off the hook! (Do people still say "off the hook"? I might be a few years late on that.)
