"Nightmare Machine"

Instruments: Percussion, Organ, Basses

Feel: Action, Driving, Eerie

This piece shares a bassline with "Eternal Terminal" (found elsewhere on this site). It also has the same waterphone. You can use these 2 pieces together and make it seem like your project had a custom composer! How cool is that!?

"Shadowlands 3 - Machine"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part three of seven. Part pipe organ, part broken pipe organ, this isn't just spooky, it is crazy spooky. It also has a musical theme, which not all of this horror moody stuff has. Consider it the jelly filling in your horror doughnut.

"Shadowlands 5 - Antechamber"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part five of seven. Airy, but not in the "I'm outdoors, and everything is great 'airy'" way. More like the "the alien machine that sustains our life is slowly breaking down and poison is beginning to seep from its core" way. Whatever is happening... it isn't fast, and it isn't good.

This piece started its life as a random challenge on a show I do on Twitch.tv called "The Wheels of Doom!". The 4 randomized elements that came together here were: Drum Machine, Strings, Xylophone, and Comedic. I think it worked out pretty well! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Instruments: EP, Piano, Synths, Percussion

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

Well, this is interesting... Smooth sine bass contrasted with a lovely excited drum machine and then... the magic! Genre bending magic! You're a cool kid right? This is for you. You're welcome. Think 'trap' meets 'R&B' meets 'shoegaze' meets some other genre that is SO COOL there isn't even a name for it yet. Download comes with a not-quite-so-slow version that is not quite so slow.

"Mighty Like Us"

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Humorous

Only 6 monophonic synths and a drum set in this entire, extremely peppy, undeniably enthusiastic, off-kilter, oddly satisfying electronic piece! Even at that, it gets pretty dense near the end.

Try this one! You'll like it! (you'll probably like it... figure about 90 percent guaranteed to like this piece by the end.) The uncompressed download comes with a mix done using electronic drums. It has a very different and more machine-like feel. Chances you'll like that one are lower... but it is totally usable for a harsher feel. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Epic, Humorous, Uplifting

It is 1895, you just got your new brass-rimmed monocle, and you want to head out to see the new gigantic music machine that was just constructed... Roaring 1920s fun, 1930s art music style bridge... it is the retro future of music.

100% electronic creepiness. Change from round and bleeping to harsh bleeping about 2 minutes in.
