"Crusade"

Instruments: French Horns, Trombones, Percussion, Trumpets

Feel: Dark, Epic, Somber, Suspenseful

Written as travelling music for a video game... this is probably a bit too active for that. There is a beautiful choral section in the trombones at 2:18. Good anvils.

"Our Story Begins"

Instruments: Winds, Strings, Brass, Percussion, Choir

Feel: Epic, Suspenseful, Uplifting

Interesting 3/4 feel with an accelerando near the end. 5-note groupings pass from the winds to the strings for a while, and the winds come back at the end in a nifty way.

Feel: Intense, Suspenseful

Loping dissonant loopable atmospheric. Same as Chee Vee Caves, but without the brass.

"Constance"

Instruments: Marimba, Xylophone, Basses, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Action, Dark, Epic, Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

A low-level intensity burn to underscore a tense situation of some sort. Actually, this will make any scene tense - like it or not.

"Invariance"

Instruments: Marimba, Xylophone, Percussion, Basses

Feel: Dark, Driving, Mysterious, Suspenseful

One file that contains the same piece in 2 tempos; slower and faster. The slower version gives a more tribal feel - the fast one destroys that, and lends a slight edge-of-the-seat feel.

"Supernatural Radio A"

Instruments: Organ

Feel: Eerie, Humorous, Suspenseful

If you're looking for that late 40s/early 50s sci-fi or supernatural radio drama - this is your piece. This was rendered on a hammond, using only the drawbars that would make it over the radio (no bass).

"Gloom Horizon"

Instruments: Basses, Cellos, Violins, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

Mournful piece with a nice melody. Melody starts at 40 seconds in. Feel free to chop out as much opening as is required. The low beat is a bass drum with the attacks cut off.

"Covert Affair"

Instruments: Bass, Ep, Kit, Trumpet

Feel: Bouncy, Suspenseful

The scene is set for a surreptitious heist or furtive affair. The fingered acoustic bass sounds woody and dark while playing against the light cymbals and the vibrant electric piano and trumpet. The individual instruments have a slight battle for dominance, but the persistence of the slick styled bass ultimately wins.

"Enter the Maze"

Instruments: Percussion, Horn, Misc

Feel: Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

A thumping bass note intermingles with metallic noises to create a feeling of tension and terror. Screeching synth noises enter occasionally, and after a shrill screaming lead, the percussion is sparse but nerve-racking.
