I love sipping lemonade by the lake when a storm approaches. I love walking through apple orchards in the fall. I love the squeak of minivan tires being dragged onto the flatbed truck of the repo man. Memories of simpler times... so wonderful.
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Talk wistfully about the past. Talk hopefully about the future. Talk about your hopes and fears. Talk about your neighborhood watch lady. Talk about your chill tracks!
Instruments: Drums, Bass, Guitar, Choir
Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Uplifting
Starts slow and builds to an ecstasy the likes of which are almost guaranteed to garner donations from your flock! Bonus track comes with a everything except the drums in case you need a smoother feel.
Instruments: Piano, Percussion
Feel: Calming, Relaxed
Gorgeous, rich piano chords run counter to subtle percussions. This piece is a workhouse for video productions. Don't bother with the preview, just download this thing. Because seriously... planning a cat rescue? This will work. Attending someone else's family reunion and trying to convince them you're related? Yes. This will work. Time lapse of a rocket assembly? Obviously. I'm looking at you, ESA!
Feel: Mystical, Calming, Relaxed
While not an epic hour-long relaxation juggernaut, Soaring is an excellent relaxation workhorse with just enough mystical qualities to keep it from being truly peaceful. Imagine a calm monkey hanging out at a remote monastery who, from time to time, will touch a tree - causing the tree to age a decade in a matter of seconds. I mean... still pretty calm, but something isn't right about that.

This piece was built almost entirely with arpeggiators. What does that mean for you? Probably nothing. But holy man! Does this sound like it is from 1983! So, pop a tape of "Flashdance" in your VCR... and then spend like 8 minutes rewinding it... because, apparently your cousin couldn't be bothered to do that. Seriously, Sally! You did the same thing when I lent you "Smokey and the Bandit II", and I didn't say anything because you had a hard week, but still managed to make the Jell-o Salad with the grapes for the family reunion... which was nice. Anyway, I'll probably just get you one of those $20 tape rewinders they have at Radio Shack for your birthday. I also enrolled you in the Battery of the Month Club. You're welcome.

Yeah Boyzzz! BGM Music in the HOUSE!!!! In this case, "BGM Music" means "Background Music... Music". You want royalty-free!? You got it! You want ukulele mastery!? You got that, too! You want a piece that's a GNDN piece!? DONE! It's like a whole new genre of undistinguished music! It is sort of bouncy, and cheery. So... somewhat distinguished. It is really hard to hype this piece, but it is wicked-useful! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Piano, Strings
Feel: Calming, Mystical, Relaxed, Somber
Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Lute, Cellos, Basses, Penny Whistle
Feel: Dark, Somber, Mystical
We've all been there. It is a little sad, a little hopeful... like when you finally set your rescue owl back into the world. You're sad to see her go, but you hope for the best. You've done all you can inside... her wings work pretty well now, and she can snatch the mice from your living room floor even when you put in a bunch of fake plants in the way to give the prey cover. Nothing to do now but hope Blossom can rule the night as you hoped she one day would. Also... time to buy a bunch of mousetraps. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

This was a quick improvisation that turned out pretty listenable! Original title was "Sofa King Beautiful", but I figured "Fresh Air" worked better. Since this is a piece for solo keyboard, I included four alternate keyboards in the uncompressed download. They all have subtly different feels. Electric Piano, Grand Piano, Spinet Piano (out of tune), and a piano where you tap the strings rather than hit it with the hammers. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Bass, Accordion, Drums, EP, Guitar, Horns, Organ, Synth, Sax, Vibes
Feel: Grooving, Relaxed
You know what's cool? A standpipe in the winter. I imagine this one with a hip mustache and a plaid beret. Enough of the imagery, this is a little downtempo chill piece with lush horn punctuation. Suitable for: walks in the rain, time-lapse videos, sad cooking shows. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
