On January 31st, 2015, I recorded this piece. For some reason, I hit the record button and played. This is all of the notes. There are no other takes; No other files from that day. I don't remember what I was doing, but I was apparently dealing with fear and hope and apprehension... at least that is what it sounds like to me today - months later. Every now and again, I'll find these files - they are something of an emotional journal. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Download has the original MIDI file! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Disquiet

Genre: Soundtrack Collection: Heartfelt Melodies
Time: 3:05 70 BPM (Adagio - Somewhat Slow)
Instruments: Piano
Listen!




Floating and grounding, this piece has a lot of bass guts but still a lot of reach on the high end. Perfect for retrospectives, automobile time lapses, drunken frat parties (black and white), and studying montages. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Time: 4:30 80 BPM (Andante - Medium Speed)
Instruments: Piano, Bass, Drums, Synths, Mellowtron

When circuits throw a party, I imagine it sounds something like this. They can be a bit hyperactive at times. The super download comes with a more calm version at 120 beats per minute, and a crazy fast version at 180 beats per minute! All three versions loop perfectly, so you can make this as long as you need it! You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Nano Hoedown

Genre: Unclassifiable
Time: 2:34 150 BPM (Allegro - Pretty Fast)
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Listen!




Is someone dying onscreen, but you still need some dialog so you can't go up against a solo oboe (the universal musical shorthand for death scenes)? We got this! Dark and moving, this piece will make you cry and not get in the way of those final bits of dialog! Also useful for sullen montage sequences of clergy activities.

Lost Time

Genre: Soundtrack Collection: Gloom and Sadness
Time: 3:47 55 BPM (Largo - Very Slow)
Instruments: violas, cellos, basses
Listen!




Big broad sound certain to give a sense of rockin' wonder! It switches back and forth between faster guitar-driven sections and majestic horn sections. I know - it sounds like it won't work, but it totally DOES work. Just imagine motocross highlights to this! Or any extreme sport that would benefit from the use of slow motion.

Motherlode

Genre: Rock Collection: Rock Medium
Time: 3:57 90 BPM (Andante - Medium Speed)
Instruments: guitars, bass, drums, french horn, trumpet
Listen!




Sparse and beautiful, this piece has a major change in tone at 2:27, moving to a more energetic feel without destroying what came before. Voluminous choirs support the piece at various moments. They also let the drums stand on their own. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Bumba Crossing

Genre: African Collection: Light
Time: 4:37 92 BPM (Moderato - A Bit Fast)
Instruments: Drums, Bass, Marimba, Choir, Flute
Listen!




This is somewhat relaxing, while still having some forward momentum. Kind of like sleeping on a train... or taking MBA classes. I like the spinney-sounding synths. The chorus effects give this piece a watery feel. Kind of like a shimmering pond... or being on hold for an insurance company run by sperm whales. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Jellyfish in Space

Genre: Unclassifiable Collection: Serenity
Time: 6:31 100 BPM (Moderato - A Bit Fast)
Instruments: Guitar, Ocarina, EP, Bass, Synths, Percussion
Listen!




Big drums start with piece to reveal that they were not establishing the downbeat. Tight synth percussion and 8-bit inspired synths make this piece downright danceable! And who doesn't like a giant 80s synth? Or a 90s chip tunes synth? Or a modern synth? We gots them all! You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Exit the Premises

Genre: Electronica Collection: Hard Electronic
Time: 3:30 128 BPM (Allegro - Pretty Fast)
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Listen!




Is it a samba? Probably. It also depends on how broadly you define a samba. Percussion comes in heavy later in the piece with a pile of street drummers for a thicker feel. I'm having a hard time describing the exact groove of this piece. "Slightly whiter than average samba"? You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Grooving

Carnivale Intrigue

Genre: Latin Collection: Latin Sounds
Time: 3:20 95 BPM (Moderato - A Bit Fast)
Instruments: Percussion, Bass, Organ, Horns
Listen!




Beautiful dreamy piece that confuses times and spaces. You really just need to take a moment and listen to this one - because it is really cool. How cool? You should probably find out! There are a lot of extra synth things going on in it that are hidden in and amongst the piano, like one of those hidden picture books with 45 paperclips, but you can only ever see 7 of them. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Dreams Become Real

Genre: Contemporary Collection: Elegant Piano
Time: 6:50 60 BPM (Largo - Very Slow)
Instruments: Piano, Synths
Listen!




This is a sort of electronic music with a heavy backbeat and thumpin' bass. There is a significant change in theme at around 2 minutes - so if the beginning is a bit boring, you can start there. There is another fun change at around 3:30. If you didn't like the previous bits, just start there! I think you get the picture. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
