"Northern Glade"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Bright, Calming, Relaxed

Are you sick of "high pressure" games that "keep score"? Yeah, me too. But I FIXED it! I made a game where literally nothing happens, and nothing matters! I enjoy playing as a chicken, though it grants you no special powers. I'm not sure what chicken powers would be. Brief and ponderous flight? Speak to other chickens? Super fast egg warming?

"Getting it Done"

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Bright, Grooving, Relaxed

Extremely satisfying sound design with super clean bloopy synths in a light dance context. Recommended for all your needs. Unless you need a fire suppression system. It won't work for that. Unless you need music for your fire suppression system. It will work for that.

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.

It came from the 1980s, but was mutated by some trap monster which gave it a new lease on life! I'm not gonna lie, this is an odd hybrid - super useful for your YouTube channels! You can't not like this piece... unless you have no soul.

"Salty Ditty"

Instruments: Synth, Percussion

Feel: Bouncy, Humorous, Uplifting

Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like "Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?" Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.

"Magic Forest"

Instruments: Cello, Violin, Synths

Feel: Mystical, Dark, Mysterious

Remember that time you were lost in the woods and you were visited by the clan of centaurs, and they were super suspicious of you, but decided to take you back to their settlement anyway? It never happened! That was a screen memory! There are no centaurs, and they wouldn't live in forest settlements! That was an alien abduction. The aliens planted the memory of the forest centaurs so your brain wouldn't implode with the knowledge of trans-dimensional beings... such as themselves. And... unrelated, but... what comes to mind when you think about the smell of wet cardboard and Sriracha?

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Action, Driving, Uplifting

This piece was built almost entirely with arpeggiators. What does that mean for you? Probably nothing. But holy man! Does this sound like it is from 1983! So, pop a tape of "Flashdance" in your VCR... and then spend like 8 minutes rewinding it... because, apparently your cousin couldn't be bothered to do that. Seriously, Sally! You did the same thing when I lent you "Smokey and the Bandit II", and I didn't say anything because you had a hard week, but still managed to make the Jell-o Salad with the grapes for the family reunion... which was nice. Anyway, I'll probably just get you one of those $20 tape rewinders they have at Radio Shack for your birthday. I also enrolled you in the Battery of the Month Club. You're welcome.

"District Four"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Organ, Percussion

Feel: Aggressive, Bouncy, Grooving

Deep grooving crazy big percussion. Super danceable! High energy, without every getting the way. Useful for tech videos, badass characters, or general listenings! The download comes with all the parts separated out as well as a bonus track at 165 beats per minute (slightly slower and even deeper grooving!).

Upbeat, bright, and super catchy! Just try not to rap to this piece! TRY IT! You can't, can you! I mean... I can, but I've been training to not rap my entire life. It started with me not-rapping in my childhood in the upper midwest. My lack-of-rapping hit a new high while on a high school band trip to Disneyworld, and was again bolstered in a crazy non-rap filled Spring Break in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. There's just something about not-rapping and industrial forestry...

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed

Laid-back, grooving, and cool. Did I mention cool? You need a cool piece. That is a statement you NEED a cool piece. Lucky for you, this IS a cool piece. Super clean production will allow this piece to fit into most things. I'd personally use this piece for a super badass character. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Instruments: Xylophone, English Horn, Oboe, Bass Clarinet, Flutes, French Horn, Basses, Cellos, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Epic, Action, Driving

Five! Five full minutes of battle fighting action bits with a bit of an Egyptian flair! For some reason I associate English horn with desert nomads. There must have been some cultural reference in my youth to that effect. Super crazy awesome brass is super crazy awesome... wait for it... you'll be glad you did!
