Remember when you went on summer holiday to your Auntie's house outside Nether Wallop in Hampshire while your parents went to Cyprus to broker a secret deal with the Ottoman Empire? Remember the times in the Magic Garden? This piece of music is more "Magic Garden" than "Inter-Empire Diplomacy".

Let's talk about why so much film music sounds like this. The construction allows any part to be muted and otherwise sculpted around the dialog without the loss of a theme or motive energy. There isn't really a theme to lose. You can't hum this one easily. There is a lot of variation, but it is all in a very well defined range, and doesn't get too crazy.

This is dark and concerning - like the lights-out bonus level on your hidden object game. Almost exactly like that. As if it was written for the dark bonus level of a hidden object game. Just as if.

There is nothing in this piece that is even vaguely reminiscent of "La Macarena". I shouldn't have said that. I should not have said that. Don't go listening for it, for such a journey will surely end in tragedy.

Feel: Grooving, Mysterious, Calm

This is my favorite piece that perfectly captures a slightly grown-up sound, but still sounds like a 1990s-era action-drama. Old Way: Synthesized Electric Piano New Way: Actual EP Recordings that are built into virtual instruments that are then put through a lot of processors to make them SOUND like Synthesized Electric Pianos. Old Way: Synthesized Ocarina New Way: Assemble recordings of an ocarina player, and then make a virtual instrument that captures beautiful expression and legato lines... turn off all that fancy stuff and play it like a crappy synth.

Holy smoldering tenor sax, Batman!! You want to set a mood? This is your track! It just keeps building and building! The sheet music for this recording is a post-it that says "noodle in F Minor." Such is the power of a real musician! You can just give them notes like that... and get music like this!

Just your average, run-of-the-mill tension filler music... Or IS it!? Yeah, it pretty much is. This does feature a poorly played guitar synth, though... so it is a stand-out in that way. If you were here for tension-building music, you already have this piece... Move along.

You're looking for the low-down, huh? That's going to take lettuce. You want the dope? the scoop? the skinny? Ten bucks a day plus expenses. No negotiations. I ain't no fourth-rate gumshoe - but a ducky shincracker like you already knew that... Out of curiosity, what's the word for people who overuse slang?

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed, Mysterious

This was written for a sneaky-yet-cool scene. The kind where our main character is trailing a subject to find out where they get the amazing cheese they serve at their restaurant. There's a bunch of bits where the paranoid restauranteur turns around unexpectedly and Private Detective Alice Winterbottom has to duck behind dumpsters, or spin around casually pretending to be on a phone call, or hide behind a watermelon at the fruit stand.

Well met, traveller! Come warm by my brazier... Is that a Djinn in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Hah! I have a joke with you! ...unless it is a djinn - then you must leave immediately! ...unless that would offend the djinn - then you must stay! ...unless the djinn is going to kill me - then you must leave immediately! ...unless it will save me from a fate worse than death - then you must stay! Oh good... it was an erection. Uncompressed download comes with a faster version.
