Feel: Eerie, Dark, Driving

Have you ever heard a 4 bassoon ensemble before? Not likely. While bassoonists may create temporary pair-bonds, they are never found in groups of 3 or more. Much digital trickery was involved in this piece to make them appear as though they were all in the same room at the same time. Tuba players, on the other hand exhibit extreme flocking behaviour, and have even been spotted in mass migrations.

High-energy, fast-paced, and memorable, this is a great background to your 2D platformer. It was actually written for a 2D platformer, which is why it will loop back on itself so well. Like Ouroboros! If you're looking for a high school mascot, PLEASE consider Ouroboros. I'm not sure if it would make for great cheerleading routines, or if it would end up looking more like a human centipede.... But there is one way to fine out! Go! Fighting Ouroboroses!!

This piece gets a lot of its crazy from the exposed dissonances. So, before you start going on and on about "wrong" notes; They are there for a reason! I'm almost sure of it. They really sound quite intentional. Why else would I write something like that? Totally done with forethought. Yup. 100% on purpose.

Feel: Dark, Grooving, Humorous

SpoooooOOoooky! Nothing says comedically spooky quite like a theramin. I don't actually own a theramin, so I cheated. Like I do. This one was created with the ES2 synth, which everyone I know hates and/or fears. It really is just misunderstood, and is quite lovely at parties.

More action and more intensity! Remember "Legends of the Hidden Temple"? Seriously? It only lasted 3 seasons. It must have been more difficult than it looked. Okay, I wasn't on the show, but I think I could have assembled a silver monkey statue with only 3 pieces.

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 piece shares a bassline with "Eternal Terminal" (found elsewhere on this site). It also has the same waterphone. You can use these 2 pieces together and make it seem like your project had a custom composer! How cool is that!?

I like the waterphone in this piece. It is a bunch of metal tubes welded together, and played with a bow. It is that creepy high-pitched thing you hear in horror movies all the time.

Pulsing Dooom! Recommended for use in all your various adventure-y side-scrollers with lots of shooting or stabbing, and the occasional jump-scare. Should loop really great!

The whole Orchestral Speed Metal genre has been done to death. But you can't consider yourself a real composer if you haven't checked "Orchestral Speed Metal" off your list. Other essential genres include: Electro Emo-Pop, Motet, Disco Noise, Adult Contemporary, Tone Poem, Haircore, and Zydeco Revival.
