A piece of music from a more elegant time, 1940. This is a beautiful slow piece that will make you want to pick up some champagne and go off slow dancing with people... or penguins. I like penguins. And now some searchable words: Big Band. 1940s. Forties. Formal Party. Penguin Slow Dance. No Whammies. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

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.

Semi-8 bit, sort of 1980's synth pop crazy thing! Super energy; Crazy fun. Perfect for: automobile reviews, actions montages, martial arts clips, or anything with fast edits that needs a good pace!

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

You got flow? You want this. Borderline chill and aggressive, this piece is your man! It does stand alone, but if you got words... it is amazing! Try it! What style is this? I'm not sure. It borrows from a lot - but I don't think it fits anything out there. Rickenbacker bass, gnarled piano, and a distorted drum kit all fit together beautifully. Percussion breakdown at 2:17.

I need to be careful about naming these things. Could be neo-retro sci-fi - could be straight up paranormal! Whatever it is, there is a major mystery to be had here! Ideal for technology-induced mummy reanimation films. The alternate mixes in the full download both give a slightly different feel - one with no percussion, and one without the theremin-like synth lead. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Instruments: Piano, Percussion, Synth

Dreamy and edgy; Not a combination you often find, and yet - here it is. The ambiguous and slippery nature of the piece are a wonderful thing. Perfect for scoring a character where the audience is unsure of them. Could be good? Could be evil? WE DON'T KNOW! You can download this in uncompressed format here.

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!

Floating and grounding, this piece has a lot of bass guts but still a lot of reach on the high end.

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.

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.

Instruments: violas, cellos, basses

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.
