"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!

Ukulele and flutes and glockenspiel... I think you already know what this sounds like. The percussion is also adorable.

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.

Cool jazz. I'm going to warn you now, that organ line gets stuck in your head really easily... like an icepick in a Marxist revolutionary. Too soon?

This is cool. You can walk into a dinner party, grab a glass of prosecco, kiss the host, then casually defuse a large bomb one second before the timer runs out. That level of cool. Maybe you're not that cool, but if you adopt this as your personal theme tune, people will THINK you're that cool.

"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.

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!?

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.

"Sunday Dub"

Instruments: Guitar, Drums, Bass, Organ

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed, Mysterious

This was written for a sneaky-yet-cool scene. The kind where our main character is trailing a subject to find out where they get the amazing cheese they serve at their restaurant. There's a bunch of bits where the paranoid restauranteur turns around unexpectedly and Private Detective Alice Winterbottom has to duck behind dumpsters, or spin around casually pretending to be on a phone call, or hide behind a watermelon at the fruit stand.

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Unnerving

Welcome to the tropical paradise of Port Horizon. Not much to do here but listen to the short wave radios and play guitar. There is also food and drinks with those little umbrellas... Other than that - not much. Except snorkeling. Snorkeling is pretty cool. Oh, there is also Art Night on Tuesday - where you get a volleyball and some paints and make yourself a friend! Beach chess... I forgot about Beach Chess. Don't play white against Todd, though - he plays all-Hedgehog all the time. Come on, Todd - just once, seriously ONCE could you play King's Indian or... you know what? I'd even take the French Defence; Exchange Variation, you boring symmetrical jerk.

"Too Cool"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

You know when you watch a vampire movie and then you walk out into the real world, but you're still sort of in the fictional world because it looked like the real world... and that's where you are now. I call this Persistence of Fiction, and it feels awesome! Capture some fiction by playing this track while walking to the bus... er the Vampire Bus! or waiting in line at the Vampire DMV or sorting Vampire Direct Mail Ads or doing some Vampire Macrame.
