"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.

"Honey Bee"

Instruments: EP, Bass, Percussion, Horns

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

The electric piano alternates between playing the rhythm and creating a sliding melody, while trumpets sound in the background, sometimes stealing the melody. The percussion makes for a toe-tapping good time. This is useful for the closing segment of a TV show, game, or transition. Cleanly loopable.

"There It Is"

Instruments: Guitar, Horns, Bass, Percussion

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving

Very quick and jovial, this brass heavy piece has a guitar riff that sticks in the brain, but ends suddenly. Useful for a quick theme introduction, transition, or for a fast and exciting commercial.

"At Rest"

Instruments: Piano, Voice, Strings, Choir

Feel: Relaxed, Somber

A recurring voice melody cascades over piano chords that sway in the breeze. Strings and horns then play the melody as the piano is slightly more forceful before settling again. It is suggestive of sadness, but with a sense of closure and peace.

"Court of the Queen"

Instruments: Strings, Brass, Percussion, Celeste

Feel: Bright, Relaxed

Slow Waltz. English Waltz. Foxtrot. Slow Fox. Regal in its construction, this waltz is meant for the ballroom floor of a grand soiree. The pizzicato strings provide the rhythm in the first half, while strings and horns play the melody. A harp accompanies a celeste in creating transitions between segments of the music. As the music crescendos into the third minute, the frivolity turns more serious, and the piece ends with a few interchangeable chords between the celeste and the horns.

"Failing Defense"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful

This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.

"Split In Synapse"

Instruments: Synths, Brass, Clarinet. Percussion

Feel: Action, Intense, Unnerving

A short piece that mixes the symphony with frenzied electronica elements and a dance beat. The horns are blasting and discordant, the synthesizer is manic, the effects disorienting, and the final cresecendo push is loud and forceful.

"Clenched Teeth"

Instruments: Strings, Brass, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense

Timpanis and strings battle with a snare drum and horns throughout this epic piece, slowly building and rising to chaos. The music is high-action and only includes a few short dramatic interludes.

"Devastation and Revenge"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Strings, Brass, Guitar, Voice

Feel: Eerie, Epic, Intense, Mystical, Somber, Suspenseful

A low hum sets a dark and mysterious mood, but at 0:49 the orchestral strings, horns, and pounding drums begin, perfect as the background to the hero?s dilemma or impending battle scene. At 2:01 the music reaches a climax and builds into discordant, terrifying suspense. The ending, at 2:35, features a lone guitar and mournful vocals, depicting a great sadness and loss.

"One-eyed Maestro"

Instruments: Accordion, Violin, Percussion, Flutes, Trumpets, Horns, Strings

Feel: Bouncy, Eerie, Humorous

This is the kind of music that makes skeletons dance. With its pounding brass, singsong flute melody, and off-kilter syncopation, this piece is whimsical and reminiscent of a carnival. It is quirky, quick, playful, and dangerously creepy, and is perfect for a lively cartoon, circus-themed content, or a magician?s show.
