Epic myth. Part of the hero's journey. Starts with a solo soprano, and later mixes a full choir. Ends assuming you'll mix it into another piece.

Instruments: Piano, Choir, Violins, Basses, Percussion, Synths

"Impromptu in Quarter Comma Meantone"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Somber

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. This gives a very rich feel to the base chords, but leaves a couple of "wolf notes" in the gaps (most notably in the Ab). 2 minutes in, it lingers on the most out-of tune part of the scales.

Instruments: Orchestral - Bass, Cello, Violin, Celesta, Bells, Wind, Cymbal

Feel: Somber, Unnerving, Eerie, Mystical

Scant few cellos and bassists play pizzicato under celesta, bells, and violins in this slow and careful piece. The extra string tag on the end is not intended as part of the piece, it is included for use stand-alone in foreshadowing in video editing.
