"Stay the Course"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Suspenseful, Dark, Calm

A low rumble marks the seconds. Out of nowhere comes nothing! Just a continuous ominous force, never seen. You can see the ominous force if you sprinkle some iron filing around.

"Symmetry"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Suspenseful, Unnerving

This piece has a good beat and you can dance to it... assuming you are a dark, lurking horror with a betentacled face and an urge to consume life forces.

"I Can Feel it Coming"

Instruments: Guitar, Percussion, Synth

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.

"Man Down"

Instruments: EP, Violas, Cellos, Strings

Feel: Suspenseful, Dark, Somber

This is the Miami Nights main theme motive, but really quite sad. You know what's awesome? This "string synth" is 8 actual cellos and 12 violas... multi-tracked 4 times. Technology! So much power, you can't help but abuse it!

"River of Io"

Instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Strings, Percussion

Feel: Driving, Mysterious, Suspenseful

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.

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.

The Year: Future Year. The planet has been ravaged by desertification... that apparently no one saw coming... Not sure how that happened, I mean Jeez! Anyone ever hear of a little disaster called "The Aral Sea"? That seriously screwed up... like... everything. I guess the dam is supposed to help, but I'm seriously not holding my breath. Oh. Industrial-sounding music.

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.

Feel: Action, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Starts small, gets big... then smaller, then REALLY big... then small again. Kind of like a turtle. Actually, it is entirely possible that I just kept seeing different turtles. I mean, they all sort of look like turtles; I wasn't tagging them or marking them with chalk or anything. Chalk will probably just wash off in the pond anyway. Oh! Kind of like a puffer fish! Like a musical puffer fish! Perfect. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving, Suspenseful

Very moody little piece with some melodic interest. Tension could be high grade or low grade depending on your context. Waiting for a drug deal to go through in Belize? This'll work. Concerned about the health of your hyacinth macaw while waiting at the vet office? This'll work. Waiting for the OSHA all-clear at your box factory? This'll work. It is mainly about waiting for things. Probably not good things. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

You want battle music? You can't HANDLE the battle music! Meh. You probably can. As battle music goes, this is pretty tame - no blaring trumpets or hyperactive xylophones... Why? Dialog! You can actually talk over this battle music! Feel free to punctuate with your own stabs after you cut around your dialog. Or don't. You can use this as a loop on your Twitch stream for anything... battle-y. That rough spiccato bass line is off the hook! (Do people still say "off the hook"? I might be a few years late on that.)
