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.
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.
Instruments: Vibes, Bass, Percussion, Sax, Trumpet
Feel: Grooving, Unnerving
Filtered vibe and horns play against a relentless bass and percussion section.

"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.
