"Vanishing"

Instruments: Prepared Piano, Bass Clarinet, Cello, Clarinet, English Horn, Tuba, Trombones, French Horns, Oboe, Synth, Violin, Flutes

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious

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!

"Intrepid"

Instruments: Basses, Cellos, Tuba, Trombones, Prepared Piano, Voice, Drums

Feel: Eerie, Mysterious, Somber, Dark

This has a little bit of early music flair to it with a nice vocal performance (if you don't like the vocals, you can get a version without in the super download). I've listened to this piece non-stop for like an hour. Still beautiful! The least you could do is listen to this once! It is only a few minutes. Go ahead! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Spellbound"

Instruments: Synths, Voice, Percussion

Feel: Mystical, Eerie, Mysterious, Calming, Dark

Reverbs, reverbs, reverbs! You want reverbs in you music, you got reverbs right here! Room reverbs, plate reverbs, even some spring reverbs! It is amazing! It is incredible! How can there be so much reverb?! So... why... You get a very hollow spooky thin feeling with the reverbs. This started out as an attempt to understand Witch House music. Pretty sure I still don't understand it. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Mystic Force"

Instruments: Gamelan, Helicon, Percussion

Feel: Mystical, Eerie, Mysterious, Calming, Dark

Vaguely exotic sounding, yet still comfortably tonal, this piece certainly falls between some cracks. Gamelan is listed as an instrument... but that's sort of like listing an orchestra as an instrument... which I sometimes do. The other thing in here is that helicon. Imagine you take a french horn (which is like 5 meters of tubes) and make it even bigger! I guess it is also the name of a mountain in Greece? I did not use the mountain in this piece.

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving

Well, something has taken a turn for the not-quite-as-good-as-I'd-like. Slow-moving drone of impending doom!

"Ossuary 3 - Words"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". Part 3: Words Odd metals and percussion underscore the only piece in the series with a clear clean synth. There's some amount of technology under this thing. The synth is quickly overtaken by the bizarre drones. Perfect for; being stranded in space... in a ship.

"Ossuary 2 - Turn"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Relaxed, Calming, Eerie, Mysterious

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". Part 2: Turn More aggressive than part one, something is most certainly going down here. Perfect for; seeing how far down the rabbit hole goes, Loch Ness expeditions, videos about giant capacitors, dinner parties where you want everyone uncomfortable. Gets quite awful around the 3:15 mark. Awful in a good way. You can download the uncompressed version of this here! It comes with separate files for the percussion and synth if you want to mix them on your own.
