"Le Grand Chase"

Instruments: Piano, Percussion, Xylophone, Bari Sax, Tuba, Trumpet, Car Horns

Feel: Action, Bouncy, Humorous

You never notice how effective a car horn is until you use it. I usually park my car near a sidewalk and alarm 7 year olds on their way to and from school. 7 year olds are your target market for this sort of thing. They jump like antelope! All the kids in my neighborhood are acclimatized, now. It isn't as much fun. You also never notice how effective a Picardy third is until you do it with car horns. You're welcome.

Ahoy thar, and welcome aboard the quirkiest ship in these waters, "The Breakin' Wind"! I be Captain Scurvy. Adventure lies in all directions. I'll leave you now. I'm already late to get me horn piped!

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Calming, Humorous, Relaxed

Welcome to the town! If you have anything to sell, just put it in the box. The general store sells seeds. There is a Mountain Totem in the mountains. You can have a drink at the Iridium Bar. I need to tend to my giant melons now. That is not a euphemism. Bye!

Feel: Bouncy, Grooving, Humorous

This has a couple funny-sounding synths and plenty of whitespace. As a note to YouTube "producers"; 10 hours of this piece would be pretty mean. 1 hour of this piece isn't much better. For the sake of mankind, please do not make extended mixes of this piece. I can not be held responsible for mental anguish caused by repeated listening.

"Graveyard Shift"

Instruments: Theramin, Choir, Organ, Percussion, Basses

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.

How can you tell if a piece of music is intended to be comedic? Pizzicato strings and a bass clarinet! This piece has it all! Pizzicato strings? Check! Bass clarinet? You bet! Throw in some staccato high winds and you got yourself a great comedic piece! Going out on a date and want to appear more entertaining? Bring a bass clarinet! Bass clarinet players I think also get discounts at T.G.I.Fridays; Double bonus!

Hey buddy, wanna buy a ferret? How about a trained ferret? Okay, I didn't really train her... she just has a predisposition to things. She stuffs squirrels into boxes, feeds them sugary treats and then empties the boxes though mailslots. Well, if you're not going to buy her, how about some nails... to keep your mailslot closed.

A rousingly comedic romp on the dark side of Dixieland music, featuring a wonderfully questionable trumpet player!

Feel: Dark, Humorous, Suspenseful

Comedic "hard thinking" music. Chances are you won't need the entire piece if you are making a film. I made it so you can cut it up into different sounding sections of various seriousness. If you're using it for a video game, everything flows together well, or you could loop sections that work best.

Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like "Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?" Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.

This piece started its life as a random challenge on a show I do on Twitch.tv called "The Wheels of Doom!". The 4 randomized elements that came together here were: Drum Machine, Strings, Xylophone, and Comedic. I think it worked out pretty well! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
