This is my impression of a tv show street party scene scored by a composer from the 90s. #TexasSharpshooterFallacy

Feel: Action, Dark, Grooving

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!!

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.

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.

Oh geez, there's lots of notes in this one. The end of this piece is just woodwinds by themselves, and they are super cool. So often the percussion just takes over these pieces, even though there are some beautiful parts that get attention directed away from them.

Several distinct moods are found in this piece. They start at 0:00, 1:23, 2:31, and 3:10. They do all flow into each other, but can be sliced apart pretty easily. Some are quite beautiful, so stick with this piece. Excellent piece for filmmakers!

Feel: Action, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Starts small, gets big... then smaller, then REALLY big... then small again. Kind of like a turtle. Actually, it is entirely possible that I just kept seeing different turtles. I mean, they all sort of look like turtles; I wasn't tagging them or marking them with chalk or anything. Chalk will probably just wash off in the pond anyway. Oh! Kind of like a puffer fish! Like a musical puffer fish! Perfect. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Okay, it is a 12 bar blues, but you got to stick around at least until the horns! I couldn't start with the horns as that would be a frightening level of happy. The uncompressed download also comes with a perfectly loopable track for those who don't want the party to end. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Final Battle of the Dark Wizards"

Instruments: Synths, Choir, Percussion, French Horns, Trumpets, Violas

Feel: Dark, Intense, Unnerving, Epic, Mystical

Slowly building tension power that really gets going when the super gnarly drums kick in after the violas... sort of in the section with the trumpet.... then there's this part that's all like "AHHHH AHHHHHH AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!" And then there's some more "AHHHHHHHHH" and then even more and its like a new key or something, and the drums are all distorted and slammin', and then there's this wwwwwwhhhhHHHHHOOOOOOOSHHHH!!!! and some more french horn majesty - and like another keychange or something... but definitely some bass drum. The big bass drum that you stand up and hit with a mallet... not the kind you stick on the floor... and stomp on a pedal that is attached to a mallet that hits the floor drum.
