"Western Streets"

Instruments: Snare, Tenor drum, Tympani, Chimes, Gong

Feel: Dark, Suspenseful, Unnerving

An all percussion tension-sustaining piece... More chaotic than symmetric, but enough repeated themes to keep it cohesive.

"Passing Action"

Instruments: Bass, Percussion, Strings

Feel: Dark, Unnerving

This short piece is the accompaniment for the hero surreptitiously breaking into a corporation or headquarters. The reverberating congas, triangle, and synthesized percussion enhance the senses, while the bass guitar provides a strong groove. The strings raise in pitch, evoking a sense of building tension. High-pitched crescendo of strings at 0:45 is the climax of the suspense.

"Darkening Developments"

Instruments: Percussion, Synth Bass, Bass section, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Piccolo

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Mysterious, Unnerving

Bass is very VERY strong in this. Please make sure you master on a system capable of reproducing these notes. The end feel is decided different from the rest of the piece. It does an unnerving build to nowhere.

"Trio for Piano, Cello, and Clarinet"

Instruments: Piano, Cello, Clarinet

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Somber

More contemplative than outright depressing. Tempo is highly variable, so don't count on it if you have to synch to something. I didn't know there was a tradition of writing for this instrumentation. It works very well.
