"Our Story Begins"

Instruments: Winds, Strings, Brass, Percussion, Choir

Feel: Epic, Suspenseful, Uplifting

Interesting 3/4 feel with an accelerando near the end. 5-note groupings pass from the winds to the strings for a while, and the winds come back at the end in a nifty way.

"Failing Defense"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful

This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.

"Ibn Al-Noor"

Instruments: Plucked strings, Bow strings, Percussion

Feel: Action, Eerie, Suspenseful

Evocative of the Arab world, the music begins stoically; the melody accentuated by simple percussive sounds. Within the first minute, the strings hypnotize with their sinuous melody, the tribal drumming awakening the senses. In the third minute the piece changes to a heavy, dangerous string and tribal drumming that builds until all of the instruments come together in a fitful way, until the abrupt ending.

"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.

"Nerves"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Strings, Synths

Feel: Action, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The first two minutes contain many changes and shifts in tone - all intense. The final minute is a collection of all that came before, ending in a pulse-quickening finale. This is music for an action film, or a scene that begins with tremulous anxiety and ends in a big way.

"Mistake the Getaway"

Instruments: Brass, Strings, Kit, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The chase begins with horn blasts, and the kit plays a solid beat while the bass strings are a pulsing drone below the horn melody. The piece grows more tense and emotional, the strings taking the lead and rise into a flowing intensity. Danger returns in full force as the music crescendos and return for one final push.

"Open Those Bright Eyes"

Instruments: Piano, guitar, bass, kit

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

This piece is made up of three distinct variations on a melodic theme, and should be taken apart and used for transitions in a light-hearted short video. The first section begins with a bright, leading to the big push of the bombastic brass. The second section, beginning at 0:52, is the same melody, but only features the piano. This section is softer and lasts 20 seconds. The final section begins at 1:17, and ends with an excited flourish.
