"Salty Ditty"

Instruments: Synth, Percussion

Feel: Bouncy, Humorous, Uplifting

Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like "Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?" Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.

"Lobby Time"

Instruments: Vibes, Piano, Bass, Drums

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Relaxed

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

"ZigZag"

Instruments: Bass, Drums, Guitar, Mellotron, Synth

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

A little aggressive, a little chill, a little groovy, a little cool. Not entirely appropriate for all occasions, but in the right context - it may be just what you need! This is the "Goth 7th-Grader" of the music world. The instrument with the sharp chord hits is the mighty Mellotron, which is a pre-sampler sort of analog keyboard attached to a bunch of tape players. I cheated. This one is digital.

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious

Several distinct moods are found in this piece. They start at 0:00, 1:23, 2:31, and 3:10. They do all flow into each other, but can be sliced apart pretty easily. Some are quite beautiful, so stick with this piece. Excellent piece for filmmakers!

"Nowhere Land"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Uplifting

Fun fact: Working title was "Arpeggiator Rock From the 80s 1". Fun fact: This piece consist entirely of single notes being passed to a stack 5 different synths at the same time. Each synth has a different program running on it that triggers more notes. Fun fact: Scotland isn't a nation. It is technically an empire that claims sovereignty over Paraguay's 400k sheep and also Neptune's "shepherd" moon Despina.

"Gregorian Chant"

Instruments: Synth, Choir

Feel: Mystical, Somber

Is it a real Gregorian Chant? Nope. For one - there are no real words in it. Honestly, I don't want a religious exaltation mucking up my fantasy world. So if you're building a historically accurate "Monk Simulator: Year of Our Lord 882!", just move on. The other reason this isn't real is I never learned how to read that notation. There are insufficient sticks for the rhythms in the notation... I know, there is a real convention that you can learn. I just grabbed a few pieces of the sheet music from the 1200s, and guessed at how to do it. Sounds reasonable enough to me! (says the guy who knows virtually nothing about the art)

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: Synths

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.

I was looking for a subject to analogize the depth of my knowledge for the Chill Wave genre of music. Wikipedia was there for me with entire things that I didn't even know were things; Randle Cotgrave! Yeon Namgeon! Digital Mammographic Imaging! Rebelj, Serbia! In brief... I know nothing about Chill Wave. Hope you enjoy the fruits of ignorance!

Instruments: Cello, Violin, Synths

Feel: Mystical, Dark, Mysterious

Remember that time you were lost in the woods and you were visited by the clan of centaurs, and they were super suspicious of you, but decided to take you back to their settlement anyway? It never happened! That was a screen memory! There are no centaurs, and they wouldn't live in forest settlements! That was an alien abduction. The aliens planted the memory of the forest centaurs so your brain wouldn't implode with the knowledge of trans-dimensional beings... such as themselves. And... unrelated, but... what comes to mind when you think about the smell of wet cardboard and Sriracha?

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.
