"Overriding Concern"

Slow fade in with source recordings from a carnival, leading to a clean sharp synth and round synth. Tubular bells and glock add interest later.

"Cognitive Dissonance"

Instruments: Electronic

Feel: Driving, Aggressive, Action

Main theme used in two different treatments. Specifically designed to turn your brain around... one sort of gets lost in the fog in the middle, and ends up pointing the wrong way by the end. Starts with a very long slow fade.

"Jingle Bells (Calm)"

Instruments: Celesta, Violin

Feel: Relaxed, Eerie

Quite a calm arrangement of a piece that should probably be more joyous. Slow and free. This isn't really a sing-along type recording.

"Just As Soon"

Instruments: Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Brushed Kit, EP, Tenor Sax

Feel: Dark, Somber, Calming

Slow 6/8. Did you ever get up in the middle of the night and wonder what would happen if you took a Spanish guitar player, tell them to do a ballad, and give them a tasteful jazz quartet? I did.

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.
