"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"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.

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

Instruments: Strings, Percussion, Toy Piano

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Heavy bass drums and an string bass set the tone for this dark and menacing tone. The familiar refrain then plays, but is made expressive and almost violent as it is played on several string basses and cellos. The pace is rather quick and forceful, and after the quick ending, a jack-in-the-box plays, normally child-like, but made creepy because of the sinister music that came before.

"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.

"For the Fallen"

Instruments: Brass, Strings, Percussion

Feel: Epic, Intense, Somber

Beginning with beautiful symphonic chords accentuated by a glockenspiel, For The Fallen builds gently and with emotion. At the mid-point, marching drums build in and the music strikes a more serious tone, retaining its dramatic passion.

"For Originz"

Instruments: Strings, Choir, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Calming, Mystical, Relaxed

Heavy strings play several chords before a violin enters with a sliding melody, in tandem with a woman?s voice and flute. The bass drums are barely perceptible, but accentuate the orchestra as the three melodic personalities float amongst the music. The music is full of wonder and power, and ends in a strong chord, evoking a connection with nature.

"Take the Lead"

Instruments: guitars, bass, kit, synths

Feel: Aggressive, Driving

This is a rough and hard-hitting piece, best used as background music to a stressful, strained scene, or tense and suspenseful content. Heavy distorted guitars begin the song, and at 0:41 the soaring synth leads play the melody while the powerful drums kick in. A high-pitched pulsating synth effect carries the last seventeen seconds to the final punch.

"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.
