"Iron Horse - Distressed"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense

Darkly plodding, this staccato piano piece is the tense setting for the classic silent film scene: the heroine is tied to the train tracks, the steam engine train plugging along towards her. The chug-a-chug feel is maintained by a tense hammering of the chords in triplets, depicting machinery or chaos set in motion without an end in sight.

"Fig Leaf Rag - distressed"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

The classic ragtime ditty of Scott Joplin, perfect for a silent film of whimsy and humor. The piece begins with a short intro, then plays the bouncy rhythm of with a bright plodding beat. At the end of the third minute, the pace quickens, and leads into a darker refrain, but the jolly melody returns for the finale. With added record player effects.

"Finding Movement"

Instruments: Koto, String Ensemble

Feel: Calming, Uplifting

The koto in this piece follows a steady, plodding beat, while the orchestral strings provide a drone-like background. At 0:33 the strings crescendo to follow the melody of the koto, but at 1:18 the tempo slows and the strings fade away, only to return to highlight the final chord. With the even rhythm and the sharply accentuated plucks of the koto, this is best used as an introduction to a short film or game, or the resolution to a conflict surrounding family or challenges to tradition.
