"Andreas Theme"

Instruments: EP, Drums, Bass, Gemshorn, Ocarina, Synth, Percussion

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!

Feel: Driving, Suspenseful, Mysterious

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?

"Sunday Dub"

Instruments: Guitar, Drums, Bass, Organ

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.

I would like to state, for the record, that this is the worst river cruise I've ever taken. The zombie crocodiles were bad enough, but the chase for the stolen artifact statue that was taken by the Ice Monkey Lord was really quite too much. And now I'm missing my left shoe. So why are we up sneaking around UFO landing sites? NONE OF THIS MAKES ANY SENSE!!! You got some clandestine stuff going on? This track will probably work for any sneakiness anywhere.

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!

"Magic Forest"

Instruments: Cello, Violin, Synths

Feel: Mystical, Dark, Mysterious

Remember that time you were lost in the woods and you were visited by the clan of centaurs, and they were super suspicious of you, but decided to take you back to their settlement anyway? It never happened! That was a screen memory! There are no centaurs, and they wouldn't live in forest settlements! That was an alien abduction. The aliens planted the memory of the forest centaurs so your brain wouldn't implode with the knowledge of trans-dimensional beings... such as themselves. And... unrelated, but... what comes to mind when you think about the smell of wet cardboard and Sriracha?

Feel: Eerie, Grooving, Mysterious, Calming

Co-written with Bryan Teoh while he was on vacation (Thanks Bryan!) this is all the mystery and chill groove you need. So come on you cats and swingers, enjoy yourself a Jet Pilot (served in a pineapple of course) and help unravel the Secret of Tiki Island! Can you save yourself and the island from the Volcano!? No. Of course you can't. It is a freaking VOLCANO. If the pyroclastic flows and lahars don't kill you, the carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide probably will. Uncompressed download comes with 10 different stems so you can mix your own!
