"Mystic Force"

Instruments: Gamelan, Helicon, Percussion

Feel: Mystical, Eerie, Mysterious, Calming, Dark

Vaguely exotic sounding, yet still comfortably tonal, this piece certainly falls between some cracks. Gamelan is listed as an instrument... but that's sort of like listing an orchestra as an instrument... which I sometimes do. The other thing in here is that helicon. Imagine you take a french horn (which is like 5 meters of tubes) and make it even bigger! I guess it is also the name of a mountain in Greece? I did not use the mountain in this piece.

Feel: Grooving, Mysterious

The year is... I have no idea. Timeless. Could be now, could be in the 1950s. Super cool jazz for your hardcore detectives! Also useful for beat poets! Also useful for ennui or boredom! Well, interesting sorts of boredom. You can download this in high quality with separate instrument files here!

"Ossuary 7 - Resolve"

Instruments: Synths, Percussions

Feel: Mysterious, Relaxed, Suspenseful

Well, we've come to some sort of ending here... Our relaxation journey is complete, but to be honest, I've had more relaxing times clinging to the single floating piece of flotsam that resurfaced after the ship exploded. You can download the full uncompressed version here!

"Ossuary 3 - Words"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". Part 3: Words Odd metals and percussion underscore the only piece in the series with a clear clean synth. There's some amount of technology under this thing. The synth is quickly overtaken by the bizarre drones. Perfect for; being stranded in space... in a ship.

"Ossuary 2 - Turn"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Relaxed, Calming, Eerie, Mysterious

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". Part 2: Turn More aggressive than part one, something is most certainly going down here. Perfect for; seeing how far down the rabbit hole goes, Loch Ness expeditions, videos about giant capacitors, dinner parties where you want everyone uncomfortable. Gets quite awful around the 3:15 mark. Awful in a good way. You can download the uncompressed version of this here! It comes with separate files for the percussion and synth if you want to mix them on your own.

"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.

"Unwritten Return"

Instruments: Piano, Synths, Clavinet, Percussion

Feel: Grooving, Mysterious

Dreamy and edgy; Not a combination you often find, and yet - here it is. The ambiguous and slippery nature of the piece are a wonderful thing. Perfect for scoring a character where the audience is unsure of them. Could be good? Could be evil? WE DON'T KNOW! You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Intense

Dark and broody, this one starts thin, gets really muddy, and then releases to a faster clearer section. Where would I use this? No idea. I'm sure you'll think of something, though!
