|On Hold for You
"On Hold for You"
Instruments: Tenor Sax, EP, Bass, Drums
Feel: Bright, Grooving, Relaxed
The tenor sax performance in this piece was done by an AI musician. The notes and chords were generated algorithmically (not by an AI). https://sites.research.google/tonetransfer 0:33 there is an amazingly smooth and correct sounding run-up. 0:50 it goes below the actual tenor sax range. I love how it extrapolated down there! 0:58 there's some leak hiss going on at 0:58. I'll call that "artistic license". 1:08 it goes quite a bit above the standard range for a tenor sax, but those notes should be available in altissimo with some fancy fingerings. 2:20 you can almost taste the spit! 2:58 it plays the same note back to back, but changes the tone of the note. Very cool. This ToneTransfer AI Sax is amazing. Getting this level of detail in a recording with standard virtual instruments is almost impossible. AI for the win!

"SCP-x1x (Gateway to Hell)"
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving
Some nice soul-sucking horror music. It looks like an innocent birthday cake. Something mom might buy down at the Jewel’s. It showed up at the holiday party for our Class D personnel last year, but no one knows who brought it. It may be related to SCP-1117. Here’s the problem; you look at that cake too long and it looks back into you. First it fills you with dread, then it fills you with buttercream, ruining your pristine run of ketosis. You were just making progress! Dammit, Cake Demon!
Instruments: Drums, Saxophones, Trombones
Feel: Grooving, Relaxed
The good news is, you can take as long as you want to answer the final million dollar question! The bad news is that you have to listen to the synth horns until you're done.
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.
|Android Sock Hop
"Android Sock Hop"
Instruments: Drums, Bass, Organ, Synth, Guitar
Feel: Bouncy, Grooving, Humorous
This has a couple funny-sounding synths and plenty of whitespace. As a note to YouTube "producers"; 10 hours of this piece would be pretty mean. 1 hour of this piece isn't much better. For the sake of mankind, please do not make extended mixes of this piece. I can not be held responsible for mental anguish caused by repeated listening.
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Feel: Bouncy, Bright
When will it end!!?? When will it all end!!?? Honestly... probably never. This piece just keeps modulating. Up a half step every time. Didn't go long enough? Just loop it! It is your own sanity you're toying with.
|Truth in the Stones
"Truth in the Stones"
Instruments: Drums, Harp
Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical
New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.
Instruments: Cellos, Basses, Violas, Violins, Choir, Flutes, Clarinets
Feel: Relaxed, Bright, Calming
A different kind of relaxing piece with long but detailed harmonic complexity. I personally have a hard time with the drone-type of relaxing music. It doesn't work for me. This one gives your mind something to think about... very very slowly.
Instruments: Synths, Rain
Feel: Bright, Calming, Relaxed
The smell of a garden hose, that muted crack when you start up a glowstick, watching the sunrise with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice... all so calming... This piece of music is like that. Simple, bleeping, and slowly changing. Can you think of something else that is simple, bleeping, and changing? "an old PC speaker?" well, that's simple and bleeping. "EDM?" that's... bleeping and changing. "Hippie fashion?" that's... Hippie fashion? I don't know what that is. Well, it is long hair and paisley bell-bottoms and far too many beads... You just found the outside of the Venn Diagram.
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.
Instruments: Basses, Cellos, War Horn, Brass, Percussion, Choir
Feel: Aggressive, Driving, Dark
Formerly titled "Tyranid Battle Loop", this piece was written for down and dirty... and very very long battle scenes for space bug critters. But you can use it for anything you like! Got a video where you stuck a cucumber on a drone to terrorize your cat? Boom! Corruption. Or those really gross films of people removing cysts? ug. don't use this for that. Actually, why are you posting that? Don't do it. Just... ug. can't unsee... You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
