"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"Constancy Part One"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Glock, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense, Suspenseful

A rapid piece full of alternating strings and bassoons, with long and drastic bass notes. The heavy funereal chimes and foreboding minor key evoke a scene of a frantic chase through the woods or a race against time.

"Private Eye"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion

Feel: Driving, Grooving, Suspenseful

Styled in the bluesy swing of a 70?s cop drama TV show, Private Eye incorporates slick rhythms with a prominent bass line and competing bursts of horns. The final thirty seconds builds in volume with the congas until the abrupt finish.

"Not As It Seems"

Instruments: Oboe, Harp, Horns, Tuba, Percussion

Feel: Eerie, Mystical, Suspenseful

A quizzical harp and bell introduction transports you to a mysterious land of magic as bouncing horns and pounding bass drums signify peril. In the last twenty seconds an orchestra takes over and the intensity rises, leaving the scene in danger?s hands.

Instruments: Synths, Choir, Percussion

Feel: Grooving, Intense, Suspenseful
