Instruments: Guitars, Percussion
I love sipping lemonade by the lake when a storm approaches. I love walking through apple orchards in the fall. I love the squeak of minivan tires being dragged onto the flatbed truck of the repo man. Memories of simpler times... so wonderful.
Instruments: Synths, Guitar, Flute, Clarinet, Zither, Piano
Feel: Dark, Grooving, Somber
Ukulele and flutes and glockenspiel... I think you already know what this sounds like. The percussion is also adorable.
Feel: Eerie, Suspenseful, Unnerving
This piece has a good beat and you can dance to it... assuming you are a dark, lurking horror with a betentacled face and an urge to consume life forces.
Instruments: Piano, Basses
Feel: Bright, Calming, Mysterious
Remember when you went on summer holiday to your Auntie's house outside Nether Wallop in Hampshire while your parents went to Cyprus to broker a secret deal with the Ottoman Empire? Remember the times in the Magic Garden? This piece of music is more "Magic Garden" than "Inter-Empire Diplomacy".
"Morgana Rides "
Instruments: Zither, Drums, Strings, Synth
Feel: Grooving, Driving, Mysterious
This is dark and concerning - like the lights-out bonus level on your hidden object game. Almost exactly like that. As if it was written for the dark bonus level of a hidden object game. Just as if.
Instruments: EP, Violas, Cellos, Strings
Feel: Suspenseful, Dark, Somber
This is the Miami Nights main theme motive, but really quite sad. You know what's awesome? This "string synth" is 8 actual cellos and 12 violas... multi-tracked 4 times. Technology! So much power, you can't help but abuse it!
Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Guitar
Feel: Bouncy, Grooving, Dark
Deeply satisfying synths play in a slightly dystopian domain. So if you have a film where a future vampire who owns a travelling carnival comes back in time to today with a crazy assemblage of experiences for today's currently not-yet-jaded audiences... that is your piece! Also useful for cat parkour.
Instruments: Basses, CellosBassoons, English Horn, Percussion, Pipe Organ, Basses, Violins, Violas, Percussion
Feel: Eerie, Dark, Driving
Have you ever heard a 4 bassoon ensemble before? Not likely. While bassoonists may create temporary pair-bonds, they are never found in groups of 3 or more. Much digital trickery was involved in this piece to make them appear as though they were all in the same room at the same time. Tuba players, on the other hand exhibit extreme flocking behaviour, and have even been spotted in mass migrations.
Instruments: Cellos, Basses, Organ, Violins, Violas, French Horns, Percussion
Feel: Action, Dark, Grooving
High-energy, fast-paced, and memorable, this is a great background to your 2D platformer. It was actually written for a 2D platformer, which is why it will loop back on itself so well. Like Ouroboros! If you're looking for a high school mascot, PLEASE consider Ouroboros. I'm not sure if it would make for great cheerleading routines, or if it would end up looking more like a human centipede.... But there is one way to fine out! Go! Fighting Ouroboroses!!
Instruments: Basses, Cellos, Violas, Violins, Flutes, Clarinets, Oboes, Organs, Percussion, Cimbasso, Trombones
Feel: Action, Dark, Grooving
This piece gets a lot of its crazy from the exposed dissonances. So, before you start going on and on about "wrong" notes; They are there for a reason! I'm almost sure of it. They really sound quite intentional. Why else would I write something like that? Totally done with forethought. Yup. 100% on purpose.
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.
