"Magistar"

Instruments: Choir, Glockenspiel, Trumpets, Trombones, Tubas, Percussion

Feel: Driving, Epic, Mystical

The portal to my wizarding school is at the back of a payday loan place in Windsor, Ontario. It isn't quite as cool as that magic train station, but the loan place is open late. There is also a Tim Hortons across the street. So that's nice.

"Graveyard Shift"

Instruments: Theramin, Choir, Organ, Percussion, Basses

Feel: Dark, Grooving, Humorous

SpoooooOOoooky! Nothing says comedically spooky quite like a theramin. I don't actually own a theramin, so I cheated. Like I do. This one was created with the ES2 synth, which everyone I know hates and/or fears. It really is just misunderstood, and is quite lovely at parties.

"Return of the Mummy"

Instruments: Tar, Qanun, Choir, Percussion, Strings

Feel: Dark, Grooving, Mystical

Did you know that people in the 1800s used to make tea out of mummies they dug up in Egypt? Tea. Like the kind you drink. That is because people in the 1800s were dumb. They were so stupid, they thought seaweed was really quite interesting. Today, you would have to be a marine botanist to think seaweed is that exciting. I don't need to mention how "exciting" marine botanists are... Carl! Finding some Caulerpa 20 kilometers outside its published range is no reason to write a paper! And it is certainly no reason to be LATE for your OWN PARTY, CARL!!!

Feel: Action, Bouncy, Mystical

Oh geez, there's lots of notes in this one. The end of this piece is just woodwinds by themselves, and they are super cool. So often the percussion just takes over these pieces, even though there are some beautiful parts that get attention directed away from them.

I lost a couple of the synths I used to create this piece between when I wrote it and when I'm releasing it. So, no - I can not do a remix of this piece. If you need less action or less unnerving, seek the answers elsewhere - for this piece has nothing for ye!!

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.

Ok, I might be crying a little bit. But it is understandable... I went to a party store, and I saw all the colorful balloons with happy sayings on them like "Get Well" and "Feel Better" and "A Hug for You"... I just started thinking how the helium will all be gone one day. Just gone... we won't get it back, and it took millions of years of radioactive decay to get the helium we have now... and... *sniff* we just don't have millions more years to wait for more. They're wasting helium in balloons... how can I possibly "Feel Better"!?

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Mystical

We've all been there... wandering through an impenetrable forest, half dead with 2 arrows sticking out of your leg. And yet we continue - because it is probably good for the narrative. Then hope! Oh thank the old gods and the new!! An unmapped settlement of woodland inhabitants takes you in and brings you back from the brink of certain death. You don't even care that it is a scurry of giant squirrels that came to the rescue, or that the healing soup they give you is largely acorn-based, and vomit-inducing. Pastoral and beautiful. The download comes with a loop for if you never want the feeling to end.

Is it a real Gregorian Chant? Nope. For one - there are no real words in it. Honestly, I don't want a religious exaltation mucking up my fantasy world. So if you're building a historically accurate "Monk Simulator: Year of Our Lord 882!", just move on. The other reason this isn't real is I never learned how to read that notation. There are insufficient sticks for the rhythms in the notation... I know, there is a real convention that you can learn. I just grabbed a few pieces of the sheet music from the 1200s, and guessed at how to do it. Sounds reasonable enough to me! (says the guy who knows virtually nothing about the art)

Cross Hip-hop with Shoegaze and what do you get? That was not a joke. That was the description of this piece. If you have a show that opens with a shoegaze band, and then headlines a hip-hop group you could use this as the clever bridge between them! Also, you should immediately fire the concert manager. That was a terrible idea. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
