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.

So this one sounds like what is sounds like. The high quality download has a few bonus mixes. The Tin Mix is excellent for small speakers. The Phased Mix is like... sort of groovy, man. The 90 mix is a bit faster. And the House Mix is super dance party fun times! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Reverbs, reverbs, reverbs! You want reverbs in you music, you got reverbs right here! Room reverbs, plate reverbs, even some spring reverbs! It is amazing! It is incredible! How can there be so much reverb?! So... why... You get a very hollow spooky thin feeling with the reverbs. This started out as an attempt to understand Witch House music. Pretty sure I still don't understand it. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Gymnopedie No. 3"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Mysterious

A slow waltz with a beautiful and haunting melody played mostly in the higher registers. A few notes were added to Satie?s composition to keep things interesting and give the music a more full sound, the music ends with a very dark chord. This music is sad and tragic, and could be used as accompaniment to a slow dance or an art house film. Composed by Erik Satie.

"The House of Leaves"

Instruments: Harp, Violins, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

A simple harp refrain plays a child?s melody, but is torn apart by discordant screeching noises, thumps, growls, and mechanical noises.

"Impromptu in Quarter Comma Meantone"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Somber

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. This gives a very rich feel to the base chords, but leaves a couple of "wolf notes" in the gaps (most notably in the Ab). 2 minutes in, it lingers on the most out-of tune part of the scales.

"Wagner Bridal Chorus - piano"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Uplifting

A newer piano variation on Wagner's Bridal Chorus. It leaves out some of the less familiar middle section, and changes up a few chords while retaining the melody.
