Instruments: Drums, Saxophones, Trombones
Feel: Grooving, Relaxed
The good news is, you can take as long as you want to answer the final million dollar question! The bad news is that you have to listen to the synth horns until you're done.

|Final Battle of the Dark Wizards|
"Final Battle of the Dark Wizards"
Instruments: Synths, Choir, Percussion, French Horns, Trumpets, Violas
Feel: Dark, Intense, Unnerving, Epic, Mystical
Slowly building tension power that really gets going when the super gnarly drums kick in after the violas... sort of in the section with the trumpet.... then there's this part that's all like "AHHHH AHHHHHH AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!" And then there's some more "AHHHHHHHHH" and then even more and its like a new key or something, and the drums are all distorted and slammin', and then there's this wwwwwwhhhhHHHHHOOOOOOOSHHHH!!!! and some more french horn majesty - and like another keychange or something... but definitely some bass drum. The big bass drum that you stand up and hit with a mallet... not the kind you stick on the floor... and stomp on a pedal that is attached to a mallet that hits the floor drum.

Final Battle of the Dark Wizards Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
Instruments: Percussion, Synths, Piano, Voice
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mystical
A little smooth, a little edgy, this has some wicked percussion in it. I forget how many drums there are in this - but it is quite a lot. Doesn't overpower, though. This one could also be considered 140 beats per minute, depending on how you count. It is right in that grey area. And no, I don't know what the words mean... I'm not even certain of the language, or if it is a language. The uncompressed download comes with an extra No Vocals Mix.

Instruments: violas, cellos, basses
Feel: Somber, Dark
Is someone dying onscreen, but you still need some dialog so you can't go up against a solo oboe (the universal musical shorthand for death scenes)? We got this! Dark and moving, this piece will make you cry and not get in the way of those final bits of dialog! Also useful for sullen montage sequences of clergy activities.

Lost Time Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
Instruments: Strings, French Horn, Trombones, Percussion, Flute
Feel: Epic, Intense, Somber
A piece in three or four parts... depending on how you count parts. The penultimate section features a lonely flute, slowly joined by a children's choir, and finally exploding into a giant choral and orchestral ending.

Named for the sound of the final cadence. This is a nice solid grooving piece - light on polyrhythm - for 8 percussionists.

Instruments: Bass, Bass, Kit
Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Grooving
This low bass guitar piece is dirty ad raw; the strings are forcefully played, and you can hear the vibrations, the squeaks, and the ruggedness, all of which creates a carefree attitude. The drums are barely noticeable. The other bass accompanies the root bass without ever gaining prominence. When the drums stop and the bass plays its final refrain, you can really hear how the music is refreshingly unrefined.

Instruments: Oboe, Strings, Snare Drum
Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Humorous, Mysterious
An oboe and a snare drum dance a tantalizing number with the whimsical plucks of a string quartet. The staccato nature of the music suggests walking on tiptoes, while the nasal notes of the oboe flits about almost imperceptibly. In the final minute, the string quartet plays a simple rhythm, before the oboe and snare drum crescendo to the finale.

Instruments: Brass, Percussion
Feel: Driving, Grooving, Suspenseful
Styled in the bluesy swing of a 70?s cop drama TV show, Private Eye incorporates slick rhythms with a prominent bass line and competing bursts of horns. The final thirty seconds builds in volume with the congas until the abrupt finish.

|Rains Will Fall|
"Rains Will Fall"
Instruments: Piano, Kit, Strings
Feel: Calming, Somber, Uplifting
Slow Waltz. English Waltz. Foxtrot. Slow Fox. The piano plays a mournful, waltzing melody, while strings enter gently. Halfway into the second minute, the tone is more hopeful, but then returns to the sadness of the introduction. Just before the third minute ends the hope returns, but melts again into sadness with the final high note of the piano. This is music for a rainy day, or when the hero to a story has lost his way.

|Silver Blue Light|
"Silver Blue Light"
Instruments: Guitar, Synths
Feel: Bright, Calming, Relaxed
Sparse in it?s instrumentation, Silver Blue Light is quiet and pensive with atmospheric synthesized chords and guitar.. There isn?t much of a melodic line to this piece until well into the fifth minute. In the third minute the guitar plays a few high notes, and the key changes briefly, which occurs again in the final twenty seconds as well.
