Phantom from Space

"Phantom from Space"

Instruments: Piano, Percussion, Synth

Feel: Eerie, Mysterious

I need to be careful about naming these things. Could be neo-retro sci-fi - could be straight up paranormal! Whatever it is, there is a major mystery to be had here! Ideal for technology-induced mummy reanimation films. The alternate mixes in the full download both give a slightly different feel - one with no percussion, and one without the theremin-like synth lead.

Enter the Maze

"Enter the Maze"

Instruments: Percussion, Horn, Misc

Feel: Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

A thumping bass note intermingles with metallic noises to create a feeling of tension and terror. Screeching synth noises enter occasionally, and after a shrill screaming lead, the percussion is sparse but nerve-racking.

Mistake the Getaway

"Mistake the Getaway"

Instruments: Brass, Strings, Kit, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The chase begins with horn blasts, and the kit plays a solid beat while the bass strings are a pulsing drone below the horn melody. The piece grows more tense and emotional, the strings taking the lead and rise into a flowing intensity. Danger returns in full force as the music crescendos and return for one final push.

Take the Lead

"Take the Lead"

Instruments: guitars, bass, kit, synths

Feel: Aggressive, Driving

This is a rough and hard-hitting piece, best used as background music to a stressful, strained scene, or tense and suspenseful content. Heavy distorted guitars begin the song, and at 0:41 the soaring synth leads play the melody while the powerful drums kick in. A high-pitched pulsating synth effect carries the last seventeen seconds to the final punch.

This piece of music is available in an uncompressed format here.

Sock Hop

"Sock Hop"

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Vibes

Feel: Bouncy, Relaxed, Uplifting

1950's era simple rock with tremolo lead guitar and vibraphone. Almost surf music.

Welcome to the Show

"Welcome to the Show"

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Horns, Synth

Feel: Action, Driving

A one-chord wonder designed to open a show. It has a long lead out for fading. Modulation about halfway through.

Long Time Coming

"Long Time Coming"

Instruments: Electronic, Synth

Feel: Driving, Action, Grooving

Tense and mercurial, ?Long Time Coming? begins with a slow, frenetic crescendo, and at 0:40 builds into the main melody with heavy percussion. At 1:04 the percussion is tacit, and at 1:18 a rippling crescendo builds to long, demented pulls on the string bass. The percussive beat begins again at 2:18, and then the frenzied, reverbed staccato of the piano enters, accompanied by a swelling synth lead. At 3:40 the piece finds it?s stride with pulsating synthesizer effects and a rumbling bass line. Best used as accompaniment for a tense, difficult level of a game or as the final battle with a villain. Because of its steady bass beat and snyth effects, this could also work well to depict a tense and suspenseful race to the finish, or as the music playing during a vibrant, pounding rave.
