"Thunder Dreams"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Suspenseful, Unnerving

This is more of a chordal soundscape than a drone. There is a little bit of hope here and there, but it is tempered with a deep sadness. Probably useful after a loss. Beautiful, horrible.

"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 strings"

Instruments: Strings

Feel: Dark, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

I piece unlike anything I've done, this is a very difficult piece to process emotionally. It just never lets the audience rest. There are a lot of uses for this sort of piece. It is also available with percussion, which gives it a more immediacy.

Instruments: Strings, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Intense, Relaxed, Suspenseful, Unnerving

I piece unlike anything I've done, this is a very difficult piece to process emotionally. It just never lets the audience rest. There are a lot of uses for this sort of piece. It is also available with just the percussion, and just the strings... both of which are quite different from the combined.

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.

Thin, dark, moody piece that accelerates to the end. Remarkably metered and free at the same time. Guitar is all half muted.

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