Hey, man! Is that an Atoke? Hells yeah, its an Atoke! If I could choose of any shape of percussion - Iím going to choose "Taco-shaped percussion". There is no other feeling quite like beating your metal taco with a stick. I wish this description were more fictional than it actually is.
Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Synth
Feel: Grooving, Driving, Mysterious
Let's talk about why so much film music sounds like this. The construction allows any part to be muted and otherwise sculpted around the dialog without the loss of a theme or motive energy. There isn't really a theme to lose. You can't hum this one easily. There is a lot of variation, but it is all in a very well defined range, and doesn't get too crazy.

Instruments: Percussion, Synths, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Drums, Strings
Feel: Grooving, Action, Driving
Did you ever wake up one day and think, "I should write an entire soundtrack treatment for a reboot of an early 90s tv action-drama that will probably never get produced!" Of course you didn't. No worries. I got you. If they do reboot "Miami Vice," I want to capture the crappy synthetic feel of the era, but with more natural sound. There are drum machines in here that were placed on a stage, put through amps, recorded on microphones, then digitally processed to sound more like drum machines. Youíre welcome.
|Hiding Your Reality
"Hiding Your Reality"
Instruments: Percussion, Synths, Brass, Tuba, Euphonium, Bass Trombone, Trombone, French Horn, Trumpet
Feel: Action, Driving, Epic
It hurts my brain to switch from english words to symbols. Try to read these words and symbols out loud quickly: hyphen-slash-backslash/dash/-\hyphen//hashtag_octothorpe#- Crazy, right? That had nothing to do with this piece of music. I'm just sharing.
Instruments: Tenor Sax, Percussion, Synths
Feel: Grooving, Mysterious, Action
Holy smoldering tenor sax, Batman!! You want to set a mood? This is your track! It just keeps building and building! The sheet music for this recording is a post-it that says "noodle in F Minor." Such is the power of a real musician! You can just give them notes like that... and get music like this!
|Outfoxing the Fox
"Outfoxing the Fox"
Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Bass, Strings, Cellos, Violas, Violins
Feel: Grooving, Driving, Action
You threw a golf ball at me. But I saw that coming, so I had a tennis racquet handy. Then you threw a running chainsaw at me. But I saw it coming, so I had a plexiglass safety cage handy. I see that rabid ferret behind your back... Iíll be in the car.
Instruments: Guitar, Percussion, Strings
Feel: Grooving, Driving, Action
RUN! It is the Hemiola Monster!!!! We just need to get to the bar! It doesn't seem to want to cross the bar! Oh my GOD! It has friends!! No wait, that's just a standard clave pattern... (no, I'm not explaining this description OR what is wrong with my head.)
|I Can Feel it Coming
"I Can Feel it Coming"
Instruments: Guitar, Percussion, Synth
Feel: Driving, Suspenseful, Mysterious
Just your average, run-of-the-mill tension filler music... Or IS it!? Yeah, it pretty much is. This does feature a poorly played guitar synth, though... so it is a stand-out in that way. If you were here for tension-building music, you already have this piece... Move along.
Instruments: Drums, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, Tubas, Trombones, French Horns, Cimbasso, Trumpet, Xylophone.
Feel: Action, Driving, Dark
The whole Orchestral Speed Metal genre has been done to death. But you can't consider yourself a real composer if you haven't checked "Orchestral Speed Metal" off your list. Other essential genres include: Electro Emo-Pop, Motet, Disco Noise, Adult Contemporary, Tone Poem, Haircore, and Zydeco Revival.
Instruments: Organ, Percussion, Choir, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, Trumpets, Trombones, Tuba, French Horns, Cimbasso, Clarinets, Flutes, Oboes
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.
Instruments: Percussion, Choir, Tubas, Trombones, Anvils
Feel: Action, Driving, Eerie
I lost a couple of the synths I used to create this piece between when I wrote it and when I'm releasing it. So, no - I can not do a remix of this piece. If you need less action or less unnerving, seek the answers elsewhere - for this piece has nothing for ye!!
