"Nightdreams"

Instruments: Drums, Hang Drum

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

Are you still spending all of your money on shakra therapies that don't seem to work? Look no further - Nightdreams will do everything those therapies do and at a much lower cost! Presence is the truth of well-being. And no one can argue that to be well, one must first exist. Before you start listening to this piece, make certain that you exist. No one needs another one of those 'tree-falling paradoxes' messing up their lives... or their forests.

"River Fire"

Instruments: Drums, Hang Drum, Bells, Flute

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

This piece has 54 beats each minute. At Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple carving has 54 gods in opposition to 54 demons, and in their struggle they create immortality. Mystics (or mathematicians... whatever) in Ancient Greece knew of the prime factorization of this mystic number. 3 by 3 by 3 by 2. What does this all mean? Not much, as it turns out the concept of a "minute" wasn't familiar to the architects at Angkor Wat.

Instruments: Drums, Flute

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

We reflect, we dream, we are born. We gather together, we smile, we eat potato salads. We remember, we invent, muddle mint for our mojitos. We greet, we listen, we appreciate NetFlix. We collect coins and stamps... for some reason. We mix up the names of our children with the names of our pets. We x-ray baggage... with X-RAYS! Those things are like 200keV! Each! Do you know what that does to people!? Hint: Not good things.

There are 54 beads on a Buddhist prayer mala. These are used for counting recitations and chants. There are 54 beats per minute in this song. Coincidence? Sure is. What, you're going through an entire mala cycle in a minute? That's crazy talk! Studies have shown the optimal number of mantras in a single set is somewhere between 15 and 20 anyway... so don't waste your money on the 54 or 108 bead versions. You'll be a lot better doing more sets of less reps. And don't forget leg day.

Life is the source of mystical potential. Or it isn't. One of the two. If I had to bet... I would probably ask what those words mean. Even 'life' isn't simple. I don't think I could recognize what the first living thing was. It is like making a soup. Hot water? Not soup. Hot water with salt? Not soup. Add a potato? Still not soup. That's just a potato in hot salt water. At some point it becomes soup. Same with life. Bonus fact: Borscht was never soup. It is borscht.

New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.

Have you ever heard a 4 bassoon ensemble before? Not likely. While bassoonists may create temporary pair-bonds, they are never found in groups of 3 or more. Much digital trickery was involved in this piece to make them appear as though they were all in the same room at the same time. Tuba players, on the other hand exhibit extreme flocking behaviour, and have even been spotted in mass migrations.

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!!

This piece gets a lot of its crazy from the exposed dissonances. So, before you start going on and on about "wrong" notes; They are there for a reason! I'm almost sure of it. They really sound quite intentional. Why else would I write something like that? Totally done with forethought. Yup. 100% on purpose.

Feel: Dark, Grooving, Humorous

SpoooooOOoooky! Nothing says comedically spooky quite like a theramin. I don't actually own a theramin, so I cheated. Like I do. This one was created with the ES2 synth, which everyone I know hates and/or fears. It really is just misunderstood, and is quite lovely at parties.

More action and more intensity! Remember "Legends of the Hidden Temple"? Seriously? It only lasted 3 seasons. It must have been more difficult than it looked. Okay, I wasn't on the show, but I think I could have assembled a silver monkey statue with only 3 pieces.

Did you know that people in the 1800s used to make tea out of mummies they dug up in Egypt? Tea. Like the kind you drink. That is because people in the 1800s were dumb. They were so stupid, they thought seaweed was really quite interesting. Today, you would have to be a marine botanist to think seaweed is that exciting. I don't need to mention how "exciting" marine botanists are... Carl! Finding some Caulerpa 20 kilometers outside its published range is no reason to write a paper! And it is certainly no reason to be LATE for your OWN PARTY, CARL!!!

This piece shares a bassline with "Eternal Terminal" (found elsewhere on this site). It also has the same waterphone. You can use these 2 pieces together and make it seem like your project had a custom composer! How cool is that!?

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.

I lost a couple of the synths I used to create this piece between when I wrote it and when I'm releasing it. So, no - I can not do a remix of this piece. If you need less action or less unnerving, seek the answers elsewhere - for this piece has nothing for ye!!
