"Trio for Piano, Cello, and Clarinet"

Instruments: Piano, Cello, Clarinet

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Somber

More contemplative than outright depressing. Tempo is highly variable, so don't count on it if you have to synch to something. I didn't know there was a tradition of writing for this instrumentation. It works very well.

"Fairytale Waltz"

Instruments: Small Ensemble - Celesta, Oboe, Cello

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Mysterious, Eerie

"Seven Off"

Instruments: Orchestral - Full

Feel: Unnerving, Eerie, Mystical, Mysterious, Suspenseful, Somber
