"Silver Flame"

Instruments: Marimba, Drums

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

Life is the source of mystical potential. Or it isn't. One of the two. If I had to bet... I would probably ask what those words mean. Even 'life' isn't simple. I don't think I could recognize what the first living thing was. It is like making a soup. Hot water? Not soup. Hot water with salt? Not soup. Add a potato? Still not soup. That's just a potato in hot salt water. At some point it becomes soup. Same with life. Bonus fact: Borscht was never soup. It is borscht.

"Truth in the Stones"

Instruments: Drums, Harp

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.

"Ever Mindful"

Instruments: Cellos, Basses, Violas, Violins, Choir, Flutes, Clarinets

Feel: Relaxed, Bright, Calming

A different kind of relaxing piece with long but detailed harmonic complexity. I personally have a hard time with the drone-type of relaxing music. It doesn't work for me. This one gives your mind something to think about... very very slowly.

Ok, I might be crying a little bit. But it is understandable... I went to a party store, and I saw all the colorful balloons with happy sayings on them like "Get Well" and "Feel Better" and "A Hug for You"... I just started thinking how the helium will all be gone one day. Just gone... we won't get it back, and it took millions of years of radioactive decay to get the helium we have now... and... *sniff* we just don't have millions more years to wait for more. They're wasting helium in balloons... how can I possibly "Feel Better"!?

"Gregorian Chant"

Instruments: Synth, Choir

Feel: Mystical, Somber

Is it a real Gregorian Chant? Nope. For one - there are no real words in it. Honestly, I don't want a religious exaltation mucking up my fantasy world. So if you're building a historically accurate "Monk Simulator: Year of Our Lord 882!", just move on. The other reason this isn't real is I never learned how to read that notation. There are insufficient sticks for the rhythms in the notation... I know, there is a real convention that you can learn. I just grabbed a few pieces of the sheet music from the 1200s, and guessed at how to do it. Sounds reasonable enough to me! (says the guy who knows virtually nothing about the art)

"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?

"Immersed"

Instruments: Piano, Strings

Feel: Calming, Mystical, Relaxed, Somber

Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch.

Solo bass with a looping pedal. Very very slow. Super nice. Starts with the highs, and builds interest in the bass.

"At Rest"

Instruments: Piano, Voice, Strings, Choir

Feel: Relaxed, Somber

A recurring voice melody cascades over piano chords that sway in the breeze. Strings and horns then play the melody as the piano is slightly more forceful before settling again. It is suggestive of sadness, but with a sense of closure and peace.
