Instruments: Percussion, Basses, Cellos, Violins, Flutes, Clarinets
Feel: Dark, Driving, Eerie
More action and more intensity! Remember "Legends of the Hidden Temple"? Seriously? It only lasted 3 seasons. It must have been more difficult than it looked. Okay, I wasn't on the show, but I think I could have assembled a silver monkey statue with only 3 pieces.
Instruments: Percussion, Organ, Basses
Feel: Action, Driving, Eerie
This piece shares a bassline with "Eternal Terminal" (found elsewhere on this site). It also has the same waterphone. You can use these 2 pieces together and make it seem like your project had a custom composer! How cool is that!?
Instruments: Percussion, Basses, Bass Clarinet, Tubas, Trombones, Clarinets, Flutes, Oboes, French Horns
Feel: Dark, Driving, Epic
I like the waterphone in this piece. It is a bunch of metal tubes welded together, and played with a bow. It is that creepy high-pitched thing you hear in horror movies all the time.
|Death and Axes
"Death and Axes"
Instruments: Percussion, Trumpets, French Horns, Trombones, Tuba, Cimbasso, Clarinets, Flutes, Piccolo, Oboe, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, Chimes
Feel: Action, Driving, Dark
Holy epic action. Just look at the instruments in this! The piece shall now speak for itself.
Instruments: Percussion, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, Flutes, Clarinets
Feel: Action, Driving, Dark
Pulsing Dooom! Recommended for use in all your various adventure-y side-scrollers with lots of shooting or stabbing, and the occasional jump-scare. Should loop really great!
Instruments: Piano, Basses, Cellos, Flutes, Clarinets, Oboes, English Horn, Percussion
Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense
This is an awesome theme tune. For ANYthing. You got a dark comedy about an inept biologist? This will work. A gritty fantasy dealing with fairy politics? A sci-fi dystopian future where everyone likes sardines? A reality show about bicycle thieves? A slice-of-life serial about growing up in the Upper Peninsula? Seriously. Anything.
Instruments: Percussion, Synths
Feel: Driving, Suspenseful
The Year: Future Year. The planet has been ravaged by desertification... that apparently no one saw coming... Not sure how that happened, I mean Jeez! Anyone ever hear of a little disaster called "The Aral Sea"? That seriously screwed up... like... everything. I guess the dam is supposed to help, but I'm seriously not holding my breath. Oh. Industrial-sounding music.
Instruments: Flute, Percussion, Synths
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving, Suspenseful
Very moody little piece with some melodic interest. Tension could be high grade or low grade depending on your context. Waiting for a drug deal to go through in Belize? This'll work. Concerned about the health of your hyacinth macaw while waiting at the vet office? This'll work. Waiting for the OSHA all-clear at your box factory? This'll work. It is mainly about waiting for things. Probably not good things. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
|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. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Instruments: Percussion, synths, strings
Feel: Epic, Intense
Action-y intense like percussion based piece. Need to defuse a bomb while riding in a pedi-cab? This should work well for that. Or anything where tension needs to be maintained. You can download this in uncompressed format here! Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: French Horns, Trombones, Tuba, Violins, Percussion, Trumpet
Feel: Action, Dark, Driving, Epic, Intense
Driving piece without an overpowering melody. Should fit nicely into a lot of scenes.
