"Shadowlands 1 - Horizon"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Somber

Part one of seven. Sort of an edgy-underwater feel... which isn't common. You can feel the struggle just trying to get the sounds out. Imagine a small rhinoceros at a tea party. The image you have in your head has nothing to do with this piece; But it is quite amusing.

"Shadowlands 2 - Bridge"

Instruments: Synths, Prepared Piano

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part two of seven. Very close clusters of tones bring the tension! And that tension wanes and waxes without notice. If you want your audience to be concerned, this is how you do it.

"Shadowlands 3 - Machine"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part three of seven. Part pipe organ, part broken pipe organ, this isn't just spooky, it is crazy spooky. It also has a musical theme, which not all of this horror moody stuff has. Consider it the jelly filling in your horror doughnut.

"Shadowlands 4 - Breath"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part four of seven. This is the pizza cutter of this series, round and edgy. It has a little bit of melodic complexity, but mostly it just sits around being creepy. Should work well under dialog.

"Shadowlands 5 - Antechamber"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part five of seven. Airy, but not in the "I'm outdoors, and everything is great 'airy'" way. More like the "the alien machine that sustains our life is slowly breaking down and poison is beginning to seep from its core" way. Whatever is happening... it isn't fast, and it isn't good.

"Shadowlands 6 - The Pit"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part alien cacophony, part organic awfulness, part six of seven. If you set this piece as music you wake up to in the morning, you're going to have a bad, bad day. There will be half remembered monsters from the times of not-asleep, not-awake... whose only jobs are to induce unexpected nausea inside government buildings.

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part seven of seven. A real mind bender. This one is all acoustic, and no artificial synths, so it has an organic feel. Not Certified Organic, just normal organic. So, that means it looks better, requires less fertilizer, has fewer pests and a higher yield.

This is an awesome theme tune. For ANYthing. You got a dark comedy about an inept biologist? This will work. A gritty fantasy dealing with fairy politics? A sci-fi dystopian future where everyone likes sardines? A reality show about bicycle thieves? A slice-of-life serial about growing up in the Upper Peninsula? Seriously. Anything.

Sometimes you do things with little expectation of how it is going to finally turn out. Maybe you're making a hummus and cauliflower pizza roll... Will it work? Who knows! You can sort of make the hummus taste like Italian hummus if you use enough oregano, basil, and... chili flakes or something. So, then you make it, and realize it should be called a "Flaccid Spiced Hummus Ball". Eating a flaccid spiced hummus ball helps to assess your life choices... that eventually led you to eating a flaccid spiced hummus ball. Uncompressed download comes in 4 speeds; 72, 80 (this one), 88, and 96 beats per minute. Flaccid spiced hummus ball.

This piece starts BIG. Originally, this piece started slowly and built... and then I got bored and chopped out all the slowness. There are still dynamics, but if you need bigness from the get-go - here's what you get! Vroom! BIG BIG BIG! Could be too big. Could be. Probably isn't.
