"Darkest Child"

Instruments: Harp, Celesta, Cellos, Basses

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving

A childlike celeste plays high notes among a barely audible harp and deep bass. In the second minute the disturbing melody is in a lower register, and strings accentuate the discordant sounds before returning to the high register. The music is excellent for a creepy dream sequence or the exposition of an unknown fantasy world. SMARTSOUND

"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"Constancy Part One"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Glock, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense, Suspenseful

A rapid piece full of alternating strings and bassoons, with long and drastic bass notes. The heavy funereal chimes and foreboding minor key evoke a scene of a frantic chase through the woods or a race against time.

"Sneaky Snitch"

Instruments: Oboe, Strings, Snare Drum

Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Humorous, Mysterious

An oboe and a snare drum dance a tantalizing number with the whimsical plucks of a string quartet. The staccato nature of the music suggests walking on tiptoes, while the nasal notes of the oboe flits about almost imperceptibly. In the final minute, the string quartet plays a simple rhythm, before the oboe and snare drum crescendo to the finale.

"Not As It Seems"

Instruments: Oboe, Harp, Horns, Tuba, Percussion

Feel: Eerie, Mystical, Suspenseful

A quizzical harp and bell introduction transports you to a mysterious land of magic as bouncing horns and pounding bass drums signify peril. In the last twenty seconds an orchestra takes over and the intensity rises, leaving the scene in danger?s hands.

"Gone Beyond"

Instruments: Music Box, Choir

Feel: Calming, Unnerving

The child-like music box is the constant in this piece, but the repetition of the melody shifts from innocence to the music of a character detached from life, on the verge of psychoses or paranoia. The choir in the background lends the music a heavenly, albeit sepulchral feel.

"Unanswered Questions"

Instruments: Kora

Feel: Grooving, Suspenseful

The solid beat and dark melody reverberate, giving the simplicity of this single-instrument piece the feeling of mounting tension and unease. Useful for a documentary showing pain, poverty, or imprisonment.

"Sneaky"

Instruments: Alto Flute

Feel: Bouncy, Humorous, Suspenseful

Ascending and descending chromatic scales gives this piece an air of mischief; perfectly suited for a cartoon. It has moments of tenuous fluidity, rapid motion, and a touch of suspense, making it perfect for the classic scene where the hero is sneaking past the sleeping giant.
