"Midnight Tale"

Instruments: Guitar, Lute

Feel: Calm, Relaxed

Gather 'round the tavern's fire and I will share a tale for as long as I have ale. Hah! "Tale and ale!" I'm not guaranteeing rhymes, though. That was a coincidence. I was playing lute for an uninterested group of tavern-goers, when all of a sudden, I remembered that I had a sandwich for lunch! It looks like I'm out of ale, so that is the end of my tale.

"Flying Kerfuffle"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Uplifting

Happy happy, happy happiness. Happier, happiest? Happy. Now that the word has lost all meaning, take a listen to this thing. It is dripping with joy. Ever see a sad person on a jetski? Of course not. It isn't possible. Similarly, you can't listen to this and be sad. No Mortal Can! You can be angry at it, you can dislike it, but you can't be sad because of it. What happens when you employ modern club music techniques on music for folk dances? This.

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part four of seven. This is the pizza cutter of this series, round and edgy. It has a little bit of melodic complexity, but mostly it just sits around being creepy. Should work well under dialog.

"Shenyang"

Instruments: Erhu, Pipa, Yangqin, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Relaxed

When I do music based on folk traditions, I tend to name them after cities. Like this one: Shenyang. It is a little village of 8 million people that I've somehow never heard of. Oh sure, I've heard the name, but I don't associate it with anything specific. Chicago: Hot Dogs. Amsterdam: Offensively tall Dutch. Moscow: "Stop a Douchebag". Shenyang: No clue. How did I miss this city?? You already know if you need this piece, it has a more satisfying low-end than actual real Chinese music, and it should fit in with your modern productions well.

Your girlfriend has be kidnapped by ninja! Stage 1: Desert. Avoid the flaming balls and shoot cyborg ninja in the eye to win round. Retro-gaming circa 1988. I was seriously considering naming this piece "Flaming Balls" as that would also have been appropriate. Cyborg ninjas are just a little more '1988' to me. Need 10 hours of this? Loop it!

No, I don't know what this is. Some sort of Bulgarian dirge? It has a good 2-part folk melody that is pretty easy to sing, and a wonderful B section with super cadences at the middle and end.Sheet music for the voices available here.

The piece starts out nice, and then becomes a modulating monster about a minute in. It resolves to the initial key, and continues on. Lots of building! Very round-sounding.
