"Classic Horror 3"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Intense, Mysterious, Unnerving

Alternate tuning is very apparent here, Deep voicing lends a very ominous quality. Sounds more like the mind of someone who is breaking.

"Classic Horror 2"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Unnerving

5/8 time gives this piano solo a really unsettling feel. It uses more of the range of the piano, and can be chopped up to suit scenes well.

"Impromptu in Blue"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. In this piece the most out-of-tune notes give it a feel that is not often heard in contemporary piano music.
