"Obliteration"

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!!

"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.

What do you get when you cross some 8-bit music technology with Dixieland music? Well... you get stuff that sounds like this. The uncompressed download comes with a pile of extra stuff, like versions at 220, 230, 240, and a whopping 275 beats per minute! That's really fast. It also has loops that don't go through the modulation so you can repeat them as long as you'd like! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

I tried to do an EDM piece using one of my new accordions... turns out, accordion just doesn't have the fast attack needed to do fast electronic things. The melody and chords were written for a diatonic button box, but I was never able to get the live recording to work. No worries! I just turned this monster up to 11. The uncompressed download comes with a faster and slower version. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

When circuits throw a party, I imagine it sounds something like this. They can be a bit hyperactive at times. The super download comes with a more calm version at 120 beats per minute, and a crazy fast version at 180 beats per minute! All three versions loop perfectly, so you can make this as long as you need it! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

If you haven't heard this.... seriously take a listen. I'm a big fan of this piece. I get a lot of requests for things like "Yakity Sax", but there isn't really a way to do that without just ripping the piece off. Hopefully, this is enough fun!
