"Private Eye"

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.

"Failing Defense"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful

This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.

"Split In Synapse"

Instruments: Synths, Brass, Clarinet. Percussion

Feel: Action, Intense, Unnerving

A short piece that mixes the symphony with frenzied electronica elements and a dance beat. The horns are blasting and discordant, the synthesizer is manic, the effects disorienting, and the final cresecendo push is loud and forceful.

"Clenched Teeth"

Instruments: Strings, Brass, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense

Timpanis and strings battle with a snare drum and horns throughout this epic piece, slowly building and rising to chaos. The music is high-action and only includes a few short dramatic interludes.

"Nerves"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Strings, Synths

Feel: Action, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The first two minutes contain many changes and shifts in tone - all intense. The final minute is a collection of all that came before, ending in a pulse-quickening finale. This is music for an action film, or a scene that begins with tremulous anxiety and ends in a big way.

"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.

"Alchemists Tower"

Instruments: Piano, Strings, Percussion, Brass, Winds

Feel: Action, Dark, Epic, Intense

A crazy ride, starting calm and erupting into a frenzy. Calm again at the end. Very Elfman-like.
