"Ice Demon"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving

Hollow creepy background pad. This is not the feel-good hit of the summer. It is more like the cheese-grater to the brain of uncomfortableness.

"Controlled Chaos - no percussion"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Mystical, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Dark background drone made with the new SkannerXT synth. It is a new kind of synthesis that I'm just getting into. Kinda freaky.

"Satiate - only percussion"

Instruments: Percussion

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Unnerving

Highly effected percussion piece at a mid tempo. This track was extracted from a larger work, but will lend some motion and reserved immediacy to any scene.

Feel: Driving, Epic, Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

The orchestra is woodwind-heavy, it is actually low-winds-heavy so You've got a lot of Contrabass Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Contra Bassoon, Bassoon... And they're just pulsing... Pulsing and pulsing and pulsing.
So what do you use this for? I don't know. Some things that aren't quite real. It's not a very real-sounding thing.

"Oppressive Gloom"

Instruments: Strings, Bass Clarinet, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Epic, Mysterious, Somber, Suspenseful

Moody moody dark score. Almost a death march. Loops pretty darned well - but you need to trim the end.

"Mirage"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Mysterious, Relaxed

A sort of drone-based piece with something that sounds like a waterphone, and some other things that I don't know what they could be. Super chill - good amounts of tension with some glorious consonants.

"The Snow Queen"

Instruments: Strings, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Flute, Celesta, Tympani

Feel: Mysterious, Mystical

Sort of exciting and sort of spooky in that fairy tale sort of way. This is one of my favorite pieces of late. Good interplay of instruments. You can listen to this one over and over. Handy, because it does loop back to the beginning. Major build starting at 1:50 or so.
